Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong. ~ Muhammad Ali
The following is a message I received yesterday and thought it would be a benefit to my American friends, but also realising it’s a piece of advise that would not hurt for us all to consider, and deserves to be shared…Peace&Love Terry.K.
“This violence has to stop”
You can do a lot—right now, this weekend.
This weekend, it is on each of us to be a visible force in our communities for non-violence. Join together online, in your neighbourhood, in your houses of worship, around your kitchen table. For all of you community leaders, use your platforms to heal and unite. Talk and listen, see and hear each other during this moment for our country that requires profound introspection and dialogue. To find helpful resources in your community, visit the Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service at www.justice.gov/CRS.
I believe the Dallas Police Department is one of the finest in the nation—and this incredibly diverse city can bridge any divide.
To paraphrase Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, let us use our words carefully. Let us act with unity, not division.
As Dallas Police Chief David Brown—one of the leading chiefs in America—said, “there are no words to describe the atrocity that occurred to our city, all I know is that this must stop, this divisiveness between our police and our citizens.”
We endure, we overcome, we stand together.
Vice President of the United States
