Americans must unite against evil, violence

To the editor:

I'm writing in regard to all of the tragic shootings that have taken place in the United States. Human lives gone for a variety of reasons!

Citizens and police have put themselves in harm's way at one time or another to try to make a difference in their community and change the world for the better. It's the small things that shouldn't be allowed to escalate to the point of becoming big things. America has always consisted of "We The People," not this certain person or these types of people.

We have come a long way but we still have quite a long way to go. Victims and families, our thoughts and prayers are with you. We will never forget! There is a lot more good in the world than evil.
