The past few weeks have been painful to watch through the lens the 24 hour news cycle and through the statuses of friends on social media. I'm not going to claim I know what it's like to be either be black in America or a member of law enforcement. I just hope that our nation can find some middle ground and heal. What I do know is that I am against unjustified killings of anyone regardless of race or chosen profession. We are all Americans and need to remember we are tied to one another. Commonalitles are more important than differences.
