Citizens Have A Message For Dallas Cops After Shooting - It's Powerful

When an extremist took the lives of five police officers in Dallas, TX, the one thing the community wanted to do was come together.

An interfaith prayer service was held in the City where the community joined to pray and grieve, according to Independent Journal Review. Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings even asked the rest of the country to join Dallas.

“I would ask if you are at home or in your home or in your school to join us at noon in that spirit of prayer to bring our city together and our country together,” Rawlings said. “To heal wounds, not to create them.”

Thousands from across the country attended the service held in Thanksgiving Square to show their outpouring of love and support for the men and women who serve and protect their communities as police officers.

The Denver Post reports that, “around the country, people have showed up at local departments with flowers, sent social media messages or called to say thanks. They delivered coffee, pizzas, cakes and moments of solace for officers grieving after the deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.”
