Beyonce On Death Of Five Dallas Officers: ‘No Violence Will Create Peace’
A few days after writing a moving note on the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, Beyonce used her voice again to spread a message of hope in the midst of five Dallas officers who were gunned down following a peaceful protest on Thursday evening (July 8).
“No violence will create peace,” the “Formation” singer writes. “Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence.”
In her former note which was published on her website, Bey also asked readers to contact their local Congress representatives to get serious action behind gun laws and taking a deeper look into law enforcement. Her prompt reportedly crashed their website.

The platinum recording artist is currently overseas on her Formation World Tour, where she took a moment of silence for those victims of police brutality during her Glasgow performance.
Rest in peace to the officers whose lives were senselessly taken yesterday in Dallas. I am praying for a full recovery of the seven others injured. No violence will create peace. Every human life is valuable. We must be the solution. Every human being has the right to gather in peaceful protest without suffering more unnecessary violence. To effect change we must show love in the face of hate and peace in the face of violence.
