T'ruah's statement on the shootings in Dallas and the killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and Michael Schumacher
“My entire being trembles, ETERNAL—how long?...Weary am I with groaning and weeping, nightly my pillow is soaked with tears.” (Psalm 6:4,7)
Our hearts break for the blood that our country has seen shed this week.
We mourn the deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, LA; Philando Castile in St. Paul, MN; and Michael Schumacher in Madison, WI, three men murdered by police officers. We mourn equally the five police officers murdered in Dallas, TX. We pray that the five police officers and one civilian injured in Dallas recover speedily, and that the families of all the dead and wounded receive the support of loving friends, family, colleagues, and strangers.
