Letter to the Future - In Two Skins - XV

Hello Future.
It's Friday, July 8th, 2016.
It's been a while since I've last written you.

Rolling to my night stand in the dark this morning, a Wall Street Journal alert bannered my screen.

"5 Dallas Police Officers Killed by Snipers during Protests"

I buckled. I imagined the officers covering behind whatever barriers the Dallas streets offered as they scanned windows or parking garages for muzzle flash or gun barrels.  Thought of the paramedics pulling dead cops off streets still popping with small arms fire.
