I wish I could say this was a dream, but sadly it is my reality right now. I am scared, angry and just can't see how people can continue to justify their actions. There is no excuse for looting, destroying property, harming each other... Think of the innocent people affected, all the racial tension this has created, and all for what exactly? This has nothing to do with race, ethnicity, or skin color... this just people being selfish and opportunists from a very unfortunate situation. To think we have come so far throughout the history of humanity, only to end up more barbaric than ever! I am just overwhelmingly disappointed right now and don't know what to think. Hubs and I are safe for now... My heart and prayers go out to all the officers, their families, and all the other innocent people caught up in this. I truly admire those that have banned together and stood up to these sickening criminals.
