I hope this goes national, because we need a feel-good story desparately. I live in Roseville, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul, and a few blocks from my house is Rosedale Mall. Today, a man was in the mall threatening people with a knife. When the police arrived, they didn't shoot him. They didn't taze him. They talked to him. They formed a circle around him and quietly talked to him until they were able to safely take him away. Here's the link: http://www.fox9.com/news/232906401-story.
This gives me hope in the midst of the depression I've been swimming in since trump became president. Peaceful communication --- it always works. I hope it doesn't disappear in the next four years.
