When good people remain silent, vocal and aggressive voices and behavior will prevail.

Our leadership at all levels have capitulated to the “mob mentality” and are trying appeasement as the answer to the nationwide actions of Black Lives Matter. It is no answer, it is an incentive for more demands, more rioting, more social upheaval and more tearing apart the fabric of society.

It is time that those we elect, be they Republican or Democrat, with iron will and the real courage to unify and publicly demand the rioting stop, the violence stop and an immediate restoration of law and order in our country.
