It's been a weird few days in Dallas to say the least. So saddened by what happened here and all the events that have proceeded us getting here. I haven't felt like this-numb, in shock, concerned-in a long time. I have also been encouraged the last few days by the voices of reason that have spoken out against all types of violence against anyone anywhere. I know and believe we will not let a few bad people and terrible acts weaken and divide us, whether here in Dallas or across the nation. What happened here, I believe, will make us stronger and united in our resolve to overcome violence and mistrust with communication, understanding and peace.
And one last thought thought, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick should stop talking. About anything. Forever. In other words, he should be voted out of office and he can suck it.
