The shooting of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge this week was unjustifiable.
The shooting of Philando Cortise the next day in Minnesotta was unjustifiable.
The shooting the next day in Dallas of 10 police officers, 5 of whom died, was also unjustifiable.
We cannot justify any more violence.
We cannot use violence to justify.
Violence destroys. It does not create justice.
Someone has to break the pattern of violence.
Someone has to decide to respond to violence with love.
Until then, unjustifiable actions will continue.
Love really is the answer.
We just have to put it into practice.
