Message from the County Executive for August 5, 2019
August 5, 2019
I was deeply saddened this weekend for the families and cities of El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio when I learned of the tragedies that took place -- more senseless acts that needlessly killed 29 people, and injured many more. I don’t know how the families of the loved ones lost can put this traumatic event into any kind of constructive perspective.
America is a great country grounded upon the right to share one’s views and the fact that all are created equal. If we permit hate to prevail and to dominate our thinking and control our lives, then America and more than three hundred million citizens have lost.
We cannot let that happen.
Please pray for those whose lives were forever changed by the tragic events this past weekend in Texas and Ohio, and for the future of the United States of America.
