The Harnett County Democratic Party sends our deepest condolences to the families in Jacksonville, FL who lost their 3 loved ones in horrific racist murders that occurred over the weekend.

We join our fellow citizens of the nation to condemn this act of racial violence that took the lives of 3 innocent people while they were shopping. The growing numbers of race-based mass shootings in America is alarming. Racial violence is evil and it endangers the very core of our democracy.

We believe that the strength of our democracy is in our unity as a nation and in our beautifully diverse communities. One nation, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All. With a lingering pandemic, and the growing realities of climate change, we believe that there is no place for this kind of racial anger or racial violence anywhere in our nation.

We pray that GOD heals these deep racial wounds and racial tensions in our nation. May the shining light of LOVE, guide our actions and may we act with the highest consciousness in our communities across the nation.
