We need a little Grace in the world today, don’t you think.

I grew up with Andy and Barney, Car 54, Matt Dillon and Dragnet. All this violence is overwhelming to me. My father was a Little Rock Police officer and worked the radio during the 1957 Central High Crisis. I cannot remember worrying if he would be coming home at the end of his shift. Maybe because I was too young or maybe because it was a different time. I can remember when the current LRPD station was brand new. Dad would take us to the station and into the locker room of the officers. I can remember that they had a pool table for officers to unwind after a long day.
