A Life Cut Short

Larry James at Central Dallas Ministries has a blog that I read, called Larry James Urban Daily. He talks about Tyree Sims, the young man that was shot and killed just north of Fair Park a few weeks ago. Any one that has lost a family member or loved one, like myself, will be touched by this story. After reading this story, I didn’t have much motivation to write today.

This has been another bad week in the Southern Sector, with murders, strong-arm robbery, home invasions, and other violent crimes ruling the day.

The violence in the Southern Sector, and Dallas in general, is appalling. I’m not sure what the answer is, but elected officials have to take a stand. It seems like the only thing I hear elected people talking about is who will or will not run for Mayor. I will not be supporting anyone that’s elected now that hasn’t taken a stand against violence and drugs during their time of service.
