Senator David Perdue Statement On This Week’s Tragedies

ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement regarding the tragedies in Baton Rouge, St. Paul, and Dallas:

“As Americans we have lived through a week of horrific and senseless violence. We mourn for the victims, pray for their families, and stand with the brave women and men working to protect our communities.

“In the face of tragedy, Americans have always stood united. It's now time that we come together as a country. For too long we have let ourselves be driven by our differences. Now, we have the opportunity to focus on what we agree upon and regain that spark that makes our country different.

“It's time to counter tragedy with compassion, hate with love, and frustration with patience. As we move forward, our communities, large and small, can foster and influence a peaceful dialogue on how to heal and move forward.”
