We watched from our Televisions last night as the assault on Police Officers in Dallas unfolded. We as a team have two wives of Police Officers and Ex-Military on our team. I couldn’t help but think of how the targeted shooting of the men and women who serve and protect us on a daily basis just can’t be possible. We have clients, friends and relatives that we hoped were safe, and are still waiting for responses from a few.
In Dallas and the surrounding areas, we have a beautifully diverse community. We like it that way. We are an international melting pot where people of all races, religions and ethnicities come together to build a better life for their family. We need to focus as a community to make racism and violence against innocent people STOP. Choose love, equality, acceptance, hope. Not violence.
It’s more important than ever that we take action to support our communities, to celebrate our differences and similarities and to grow TOGETHER as a community.
In the wake of the attacks in Downtown Dallas, we need to help as a community to support our Police officers. All over the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, people were acting out towards the police force. As everyone ran away from the shootings, they ran towards the fire to protect us. If you would like to donate or provide services, please let us know as we are collecting a list to provide to local officials
