I offer my most heartfelt and sorrowful condolences to the Dallas police officers and their families who suffered this horrifying tragedy last night. I am simply heartbroken. This is particularly personal for me because my wife is from Dallas and I have many family members who live in communities near Dallas and throughout East Texas.
As a country we must commit ourselves to taking appropriate action to stop the violence and to respect each other and each other’s views. These officers were doing their sacred duty to protect the public, and their sacrifice must be never be forgotten.
