Red, White, Black and Blue

We the People
Working toward a more perfect union.
We have a lot of work to do. 

First we have to get past the outrage. 

I am outraged.
How about you? 
What can we do about it?
Where do we even begin? 

Let’s start small…

Today is a good day to send out words of love, encouragement and support to all of your friends who are in law enforcement. 

Let them know you are behind them.
Let them know that you understand that a cop’s life is not always an easy one.
Let them know that you are behind them.  
You don’t buy into the idea that all cops are fearful, racist, trigger happy.  
You understand that the overwhelming majority of cops are protecting and serving us and doing the right thing.
You know that they are struggling daily to make this world a better place. 

It should be easy,
because you’ve been doing it all week.
Simple.

Do it just like you did for all your black friends and their sons earlier this week. 

Do it the same.
Just like you sent out words of love and encouragement and support to the entire African American community. 

You told them that you understand that their life is not always an easy one.
You let them know that you are behind them.
You explained that you don’t buy into the idea that all black youth are gangsters, thugs, trigger happy.
You understand that the overwhelming majority of black kids are studying, working, doing the right thing. 
You let them know you’re behind them. 
You know that they are struggling daily to make this world a better place.
To make their life a better life.

Send support out today for blue lives
just like you’ve been sending it out for black lives 
just like you’re sending it out for all lives.

Just the same. 

Are you outraged?
Did it just start today?
Are the wounds fresh?

or are you black AND blue?
Bruised, battered and broken?Shattered? 

Perhaps we must fall completely to pieces 

In order to establish a more perfect union.
We have a lot of work to do.
