    Beyoncé has responded to last week's shooting of Dallas police officers by penning a letter. The letter was posted to her Instagram on Saturday along with a video of a waving Texas flag and cuts to the name of each officer that was killed.

    Beyoncé wrote, "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."

    Last week, Beyoncé responded to the shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile near Minneapolis, Minnesota by posting a letter to her website. She began the letter, "We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities. It is up to us to take a stand and demand that they 'stop killing us.' We don't need sympathy. We need everyone to respect our lives."

    "On Thursday night, during Beyoncé's concert in Glasgow, Scotland, the singer also paused for a moment of silence for Castile and Sterling as well as all those killed in instances of police brutality," reports Rolling Stone.
