A message from Minnesota officers: Let peace prevail

Minnesota Prairie Roots

Peace ad published in Faribault

NEARLY NINE HUNDRED MILES from Dallas, Texas, and an hour from Falcon Heights, Minnesota, a message of peace published this morning in my local newspaper, The Faribault Daily News.

The full-page ad on the back page of the front section comes from the Faribault Police Department and the Rice County Sheriff’s Department. In a succinct 13 words, these law enforcement officers deliver a powerful statement to our culturally diverse community.

It is the final three words that I find universally hopeful: Let Peace Prevail.

Let. Peace. Prevail.

    I wish….sat here tonight eating dinner, yes it’s 6:48 p.m. in Ontario, Canada watching the news, it’s so sad that people have to feel the way they do. Makes me wonder what this world is coming to. My heart goes out to those who lost their lives over this senseless act of killing people.

    Thank you. This is a very trying time. Not sure if you realize my son is a LEO.

    “Let there be peace, and let it begin with me.” If only each of us would commit to this . . .

    What a horrible, horrible week. Too many deaths, too much violence. Just awful

  6. Thread crazy says:

    Somewhere, somehow, we Americans must find common ground and work together to bring peace. God is truly our refuge…

  7. Doreen, thank you kindly for reposting this. Praying for peace…and using my words to, in some small way, make a difference.
