Overcoming the tragedy in Dallas



“We must learn to live together as brothers and sisters. If not, we will perish.”  [Congressman John Lewis]


In Dallas five innocent officers died

Protecting the right of assembly outside.

Let us not solely call out

Whose fault in the fallout.

But heal the wounds joining hands unified.

  • I hope John Lewis' prediction is wrong, but I also hope we will not test it and will instead follow his advice. It will make us a better people, even if not necessary for survival.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    This just seems a variant of Ben Franklin's “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” However, there are statements that King George III had the means to execute that dictum.
