Despite the bad news....there is CARING
From CNN: An image of solidarity in the midst of the Dallas shootings is shared on social media
A peaceful protest ended in bloodshed yesterday as snipers opened fire on Dallas police officers who were working the protest. Five officers lost their lives. A truly horrific act of violence.
As images began to circulate of the terror, confusion, and fear — one image stood out from the rest. It’s a photograph of a group of people surrounding a baby in a stroller, presumably protecting the baby from any more gun violence.
“In the middle of the horror, in the wake of nightmare, amid the outrage and the call to arms is this moment of humanity: People, black and white, surrounded a baby stroller in Dallas as the gunfire broke out. This is the better nature of our angels. This is who we are and who we should strive to be,” Nate Homan, former reporter at Boston Metro wrote.
