CNN reported yesterday that “President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush on Tuesday will speak at an interfaith memorial service in Dallas for five police officers slain late last week, as well as meet with the victims’ families.”

The interfaith memorial service will be held today at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, with the Arlington Police Department providing security for the memorial.

The Hill reported last Friday that former President George W. Bush said in a statement “Laura and I are heartbroken by the heinous act of violence in our city last night. Murdering the innocent is always evil, never more so than when the lives taken belong to those who protect our families and communities. Laura and I have seen firsthand the dedication, professionalism and courage of the Dallas Police Department. Their commitment to safety and justice makes us proud to call Dallas home. Our hearts go out to the families of the fallen. We pray for the wounded officers to recover fully and quickly.”

For those who are interested, KDFW FOX 4 in Dallas provided a list of ways to donate money to slain and injured officers’ families.
