President Barack Obama has expressed support for various causes in a variety of different ways. Back in June when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, Obama bathed the White House in rainbow colored lighting in celebration.
Across America, we have shown our respects for the officers who were killed in Dallas with vigils and prayer meetings. Texas Governor Greg Abbott decided to light up the governor’s mansion with blue lights to honor the 5 officers who were gunned down. President Obama did something less spectacular, the flag at the White House was flown at half-mast.
Conservative Tribune reports:
As we close out one of the most violent weeks in American history in regard to law enforcement, many have chosen to show their respects for the slain police officers in the Dallas shooting in many ways. Some have held vigils while others held a prayer meeting.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott even decided to light up the governor’s mansion with blue lights in honor of the five officers slain in the attack in Dallas.
You might think Obama would have a similar reaction to the tragedy — but you’d be wrong.
