Buffalo takes a stand for peace after recent shootings around America

After the rising tension between civilians and police officers across the United States, Buffalo is living up to its name as “the city of good neighbors” by hosting a memorial, not only to mourn and respect all of the lives that have been lost in recent events, but to truly bring people together and start authentic conversation about how to heal our nation. I had the pleasure of going down to Niagara Square to listen in and partake in these encouraging and inspiring conversations, and it was nothing short of moving. Regardless of race, profession, or political preference, everyone was there with the common ground of wanting to heal and grow beyond all of the violence that has gained so much recent attention. Many agreed that the way mainstream media has been reporting on these events only continues to divide us rather than bring us together.
