Beyoncé on Dallas Police Shootings: ‘No Violence Will Create Peace’

2016 BET Awards - Show

Days after penning a passionate letter about the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile  as well as honoring victims of police brutality during a concert stop in Glasgow Beyoncé has written another tribute dedicated to the five police officers who were killed by a gunman in Dallas on Thursday. “Rest in peace to the officers whose lives were senselessly taken yesterday in Dallas. I am praying for a full recovery of the seven others injured,” she wrote on her official Instagram page. “No violence will create peace. Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence. To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence.” A short black-and-white video accompanied her words, which can be viewed below.
