(Silver Spring, MD…July 8, 2016) , Inc. is deeply saddened and troubled by the recent events in our country.  There is no doubt, this is a critical moment in our history.  From Baton Rouge, LA and Minneapolis, MN to Dallas, TX, the outcry of Black people is reverberating throughout this country.  Our prayers and condolences are with the bereaved families of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Dallas Officers Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael Smith, Brent Thompson and Patrick Zamarripa. We pray for your peace and comfort.

Though the chain of events this week is unprecedented, the sound of frustration and outrage are all too familiar. Black lives matter because ALL lives matter. Martin Luther King said, “The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.” The killing must stop. It doesn’t serve anyone. Certainly there is a better solution.
