Words of Wisdom from South Texas

There will always be tragedy and it will always be our job to try and make things better. Sometimes it’s difficult to know just what to do or say.

In recent weeks the tragic deaths of young teens have been on the news and the issue of tolerance is back on the table for discussion. It seems we have lowered the bar. Both sides of the aisle are following the anger of the media and our politicians. We are too quick to judge.

Today my friend Arthur Wooten posted the most extraordinary video on Facebook. The words of wisdom from a young City Councilman from Fort Worth, Texas overwhelmed me and left me in a flood of tears.

I have no words, no review, simply a request that you watch and hear every word of wisdom this gentleman from South Texas has to say.
