My heart goes out to the families of the two NYPD officers killed in the line of duty last night. I'm praying for them to find solice and peace. May we all find the strength to heal with compassion not anger. Let's take pause and recognize that revenge is not the solution to violence and injustice. Only empathy, and mercy will open a path to true healing.
