    Dallas Cowboys’ Make Statement About Unity

    The officially had their first practice Sunday and the way they decided to start things off made a statement about unity to not only the NFL, but the nation. As a team, they walked arm in arm onto the field with a few special guest intertwined between players to make their statement known.

    You may have forgotten, but earlier this month a sniper killed four police officers and a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer and it shook the entire Dallas community to the core.

    Thanks to fellow Staff Writer Sean Martin, you can read some of the past and present  Cowboys players reactions to the shootings in Dallas via .

    For such a devastating event to take place so close to home really impacted the community and in particular Dallas Cowboys' own, . He was so impacted by this dreadful situation that the wheels started turning, resulting in him trying to come up with some way to honor the people affected by the situation the most, the families of the officers that lost their lives in the line of duty.

    Witten's idea quickly escalated and was then followed through in large part to Charlotte Jones-Anderson's hard work and dedication to the organization. A lot of Witten's teammates quickly jumped on board with the idea as well.

    Here's an exclamation of what the Cowboys organization and their players are trying to accomplish by coming together with the families of the fallen Dallas police officers, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, and Police Chief David Brown.

    There might not be any better way to get a point across than to have one of the most visible sports franchises in the world come together and make a statement of unity to everyone.

    Dallas Police Chief David Brown even spoke with the team and encouraged them to use their status as a professional football player to help find a solution to stop the violence and come together as a community and nation.

    plans to continue to show their support throughout training camp and by wearing an “Arm In Arm” decal on the back of their to signify the statement of unity, just like they did by interlocking their arms when first taking the field on Sunday to kick off training camp.

    Here is a look at what the “Arm In Arm” decals look like.

    The hope is that they can continue to wear the decals in the regular season, but they're still waiting to get official permission from the league.

    Personally, I could really see the “Arm In Arm” initiative taking off and a lot of other teams around the NFL joining in with the Dallas Cowboys and their statement in support of unity.

    In fact, the also faced a similar situation with police officers being gunned down in their community like Dallas did, so I could see them as being on board..

    It's way past time that people started standing up against the violence that has become a reoccurring theme here recently across our nation and I for one am proud of my Dallas Cowboys for coming up with a way to do just that.

    You can bet that the families of the slain Dallas officers appreciate what the Cowboys organization is trying to do, as well as the Dallas PD. It might have just brightened their day just a little bit to be able to take the field with their local sports team, after nearly a month of grieving the loss of their loved ones.

    Chief Brown even took to twitter and expressed his appreciation to the Cowboys organization.

    We need more sports organizations around our nation doing things like this and maybe, just maybe we can unify as a nation and stop the violence.

    Way to go Dallas Cowboys!

    It's about time someone takes a stand and do the right thing for a change.

    With all the negative press going on with the alleged domestic violence case and multiple suspensions due to use of illegal substances, it is refreshing to see this franchise being portrayed in such a positive way. It should come as no surprise when you have such a great humanitarian as your leader (Jason Witten) combined with such a powerful figure in Charlotte Jones-Anderson. I appreciate the fact that you (Brian Martin) are a positive person and write articles like these that gives us more reasons to be proud of our Cowboys! I also really dig how you credit your Sean Martin for compiling more evidence relative to the story. Being referenced as a colleague must build his confidence up – and for good reason, I recognize the growth in his perspective over these past few months. I'd be a proud dad if my son wrote such articles with maturity beyond his years. Keep it up Martin family, you're doing a great job!
