The last few days in the US has been replete with one fatality after another. First it was two black men that lost their lives through gunfire from cops, then followed by the horror of a sniper fatally shooting cops who were actually protecting those protesting the earlier killings by the police. Now is a time to do away with the “I got you language,” finger pointing, and blame. It is a time to mourn all these men that lost their lives recently.
Americans of all races, colors, gender and religion should come together to mourn, but after the mourning all Americans must put their heads together to fashion a path to deal with gun violence and the racial tension because the strategies in place right now are just not working.
