My heart has been heavy all day. The news in Dallas has been disheartening . My only relief is a strong belief that things are different here in Provo. Although I believe this to be true I know that those who serve in the Provo Police Department and their families must be experiencing great anxiety over the events around the country.
I’m not sure of all that needs to be done on their behalf but the least I can do is publicly express my appreciation to our Provo Police team and their families for their service to all of us. Thanks men and women of the Provo Police Department for going out day after day to make Provo a great place to live. Thanks for your goodness and for the risks you take everyday on our behalf.
Members of the Provo Police Department and their families will be in my prayers tonight and every night. Please know that in Provo you are appreciated and respected not just by me but by all of us. God bless and protect you.
