We have exceeded our goal and I want to thank everyone that has donated. The funds will be going to Brent's widow Emily Crawford, who also is a police officer. Brent and Emily were only married for two weeks, before he was murdered in the line of duty.

I took DART from Plano to downtown for seven years. I remember Officer Thompson from his patrolling DART to keep us safe. I never had a conversation with him, but remember him well. I'm sick about this man's murder. Can we not, as children of God, all come together? I really don't care what color you are. We all bleed red. Please, God.... Open up the hearts of all mankind to just get over all of this racial crap. Please, God.... Please, God...... Please, God..... hear our prayers. Go to church on Sunday. Pray. Let your voices be heard. Our Father, who art in Heaven, holy is your name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven....

Because I live my life dedicated to working in public transit, I have known a lot of great people that have provided protection and security for those who depend on the trains and buses and want to ride safely to their destination. Brent Thompson did not deserve this and for all Transit Police Departments including DART, I give my thanks for your service and will gladly contribute to help his family in their time of loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who grieve.

With an opportunity to give back, Arnique's has designed a shirt to help raise funds for the family of Officer Brent Thompson. With each purchase, funds will be donated to his Go Fund Me account. With a connection to DART, Arnique's is honored to help out anyway that we can. For Oak Cliff will also receive a portion of the funds . Their aim is to help build stronger communities in which we can connect, empower, and support students and neighborhoods of all levels in Dallas. Our goal is to help unite the city. Our city can no longer remain divided, we must come together as one! #OneDallas #DallasStrong http://www.arniques.com/store/p50/Dallas_Strong.html

This breaks my heart. My sincere sympathy to Officer Thompson's family and friends. "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:27

To Organizer—you are doing a great job! I don't have any police friend and even don't know any officer's name. But after Dallas and Baton Rouge police officer deaths at ambush, I decide to do something for them--- just start from a small step—donate $30. More in the future!
