As a Dallas police officer is sentenced in court and as impact statements of other loved ones are directed to her injurious killing, the brother of the deceased takes a different tone. His ability to focus on the reason for the murder trial, conviction and sentencing (in what may also be an injustice as the mother and other family members make clear too) is a story of great determination, passion, love and internal wherewithall. This young man, barely past the criteria for adulthood, grabs onto what matters the most to him ... that is what his deceased brother wanted and therefore finds a way to keep alive the character of his older and valued and now gone sibling. Yahoo news reports the story in a way that captures all sides of the many relative legal, cultural, moral and political arguments of our day, in what I would rate a perfect 10 stars in true news reporting! From the coverage of crooked systems, faulty investigations and training, faith toting Jesus moments before the jailhouse, seasoned prosecutors and crying judges along with the hug of a victim sibling to a police officer killer these newsworthy moments are hard to overlook. Today, as you listen, consider checking your biases - well - at the door. You CAN do it, as this human strenghtening moment emulates.
