President Obama Spoke the Truth about Police Officers at Memorial

LISTEN NOW! As the city of Dallas gathered together to remember the fallen officers within the Dallas Police Department, many were in attendance, including President Obama. During his words of condolences, he also spoke some powerful words towards our law enforcement and the job that they carry out each and every day.

Some may not be aware of the type of responsibilities that are daily laid upon the shoulders of our men and women in law enforcement. The President’s words reveal an accurate reality of the high expectations that they are expected to meet. “And then we tell the Police, you’re the social worker, you’re the parent, you’re the teacher, you’re the drug counselor. We tell them to keep those neighborhoods in check at all costs and do so without any political blowback, or inconvenience.” Considering these expectations, are we mindful of the stress this creates? “Don’t make a mistake that might disturb our own peace of mind. And then we feign surprised periodically when the tensions boil over.”


The President continued to emphasize that we are not only mindful of them but know them to be true. “We know those things to be true. They been true for a long time. We know it. Police, you know it. Protestors, you know it. You know how dangerous some of these communities these police officers serve are; And you pretend there is no context.” As a remedy, the President highlights the need for open dialogue and conversation. “If we cannot even talk about these things. If we cannot talk honestly and openly, not just in the comfort of our own circles, but with those that look different than us, or bring a different perspective, then we will never break this dangerous cycle.”


This is so refreshing to hear. For the first time, in a long time, words are being shared that highlight the exact truth of the reality that so many are having to navigate on a daily basis. As good as they words are to hear, we must remember the motive of organizers. “You first have to polarize before you organize.” Now, when the nation is at its peak of division, we are hearing the calming words of truth. Is the leadership of our nation planning a national police? It is concerning to wonder why we have gone 7 ½ years before hearing any of these words? We must pray for our President, for his safety, and the safety of his family.


There are so many issues happening, all at once, stoking the fire of division and animosity in our nation. We must be aware of all of them at once. To put our focus and attention on one sole issue is to lose the focus on the very issue that increases. In a time such as this, our answer is humility. We must humble ourselves and draw close to the Holy Spirit in order to know what He is saying and what His direction is for the days ahead. Hear the full conversation about the days that we are experiencing, the full comments of the President, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: Chuck Pierce, 1976, Israel, root of racism, anti-Semitism, Dallas Police Department, humility, and prayer. Greg and John shared in this segment.
