At a time when racial division and strife seem to be escalating in Obama’s America, this video will restore your faith in humanity.
A Black Lives Matter group was protesting in the streets of Dallas, Texas, the very city where a black man opened fire on police at the close of a different anti-police Black Lives Matter protest from a sniper position, killing five and wounding seven. They marched through the streets chanting ‘Too black, too strong!” A counter-protest happened across from where they were, then the unthinkable happened.
The two groups met in the middle, came together, talked, hugged, cried, and prayed together. They then joined forces to send a powerful message to those who work to divide.
As they were hugging, you can hear people saying, “We are all brothers and sisters. This is how you take down the walls.”
At the close of the video, a black man, standing with a white man, is crying tears as he says, “It’s time for us to stop this today. No more walls.” Another black man chimes in and adds, “Today, we’re going to show the rest of the country how we came together.”
As they gathered for a group hug and prayer before going their separate ways, a police officer who had been standing nearby and keeping the groups separate joined them in prayer.
If only more Black Lives Matter groups conducted themselves in such a manner as this one did, truly being peaceful and ultimately coming alongside those different than them to recognize they are all brothers and sisters in God’s eyes. Perhaps then, we wouldn’t have police officers being killed for the actions of another after some Black Lives Matter groups, the terrorist wing of the organization, calling for their murder.
God bless these people, every single one of them. May the nation learn from their actions.
