Gun Blazing Week

Apparently, I missed the memo about Gun Blazing Week. I have conflicted feelings about the retaliation event in Dallas. On the one hand, it is wrong to kill innocent people. Two wrongs also don’t make it right — I see the retaliation as equally as bad as the police brutality/homicides that we’ve all witnessed online over the last 2 years. On the other hand, never have we seen change occur without violence; believing that people will have a shift in their values feels too idealistic to me. Am I the only person grappling with gun violence in this way?
