Blue Family Silent No More
I was recently informed of a documentary that is to be shown in our area - the St. Louis area...the heart of the Ferguson riots area.
This documentary is about police in this country, and from what I can tell from the brief description and small video clip, will not promote them in a favorable light.
So, I have a choice. I can either sit back and like so many, let this skewed version of things be shown without voicing my personal understanding of law enforcement, or I can speak up. I have chosen the latter.
Though it may fall on deaf ears, and presumably will, this is the letter I sent to the ones "in charge". As you can see, I neither belittled or cursed, abused or otherwise acted in any way but cordial. Yet, I feel that I got my point across and if nothing else, can share that letter here with you in hopes that in some way, it will send a message to my blue family, that someone does care...someone is taking a stand...someone is hearing them.
So here it is...
We must take a stand. We must be a voice. We can't stay silent any longer.
