It Has Not Been A Good Week In Or For America

It has not been a good week in or for America.

In a little over 72 hours, two Black men from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and St. Paul, Minnesota, have been murdered by the police, and last night, in Dallas, Texas, snipers took aim at the police during a peaceful protest over the first two killings. Five police officers were killed and several more were wounded.
