DALLAS -- For Dallas, it has been a time of loss.

The skyline still shines with hues of blue to represent what people still can't believe happened here. The wounds are still fresh and too many questions remain unanswered.

The DPD memorial has become a place to pray, cry and mourn the loss of heroes. It's also a symbol of hope for the community, proving the city can stand together during tough times.

But just like all things, it will soon be removed. And though many may not be quite ready to move on, terror has chosen a new target:  Nice, France.

What was supposed to be a celebration of unity, turned into a horrific attack.

"We have not even finished grieving for what happened here, in the United States, in Dallas. And then the loss of more life in another country? Makes me kind of wonder what our country is coming to, what our world is coming to,” says D’anna Mitchem.

It's proof that tragedies really can happen anywhere, anytime.

So when Dallas says, we know how you feel, we really do. Maybe the best way to help ourselves is to help someone else in need.

“It’s just I think that we have to look in the mirror, and we have to see what we can do to make a change, it’s kind of like the old adage goes, Be the change you want to see in the world."
