Brookhaven, GA, July 8, 2016 – Commentary, by Trey Benton – Words are just that, words. Words describe people, places or things…our actions, our thoughts and our feelings. They describe the places we go, the things we do, the hopes and dreams we have.
Today, I struggle to find words to describe the feelings I have about the horrible incidents in Dallas, in Minnesota, in Louisiana and across America where people have lost their lives – whether it be while on duty, selling CD’s outside a convenience store or driving a car with a busted tail light – tragedy has struck and we all feel it.
Something we must realize as human beings is that no matter the color of our skin, our race, our religion, our nationality, our political affiliations, our financial status, who we love, our very reason for being – we are who we are.
I hope that one day we can all find some common ground and begin to truly live together, celebrate our differences, our similarities and think about without each other, we really are alone.
Together, we are stronger.
And we all matter.
It’s time we start acting like it.
