“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome to world!” John 16:33 ••• Thursday night hatred struck the city that I love. Hatred struck the city I call home. The Dallas Police Department protects me every day on my commute to work. The Dallas Police Department helps keep me safe every time I venture into the big city I love. They make the concerts, festivals, and fairs-possible. They put their life on the line to keep their city safe. Thursday night was an act of pure hatred and evil. I’m praying for the hero’s who’s lives were taken and their family and friends who will surely miss them. I’m praying for Dallas- I’m praying for the world. Violence is never the answer. Only love can overcome hate.
