Statement from Bishop Edward J. Burns on Brandt Jean's forgiveness of Amber Guyger

Statement from Bishop Edward J. Burns
Diocese of Dallas


What an incredible example of Christian love and forgiveness we witnessed during the victim impact statement as Botham Jean’s brother, Brandt, forgave Amber Guyger, encouraged her to turn her life over to Christ and gave her a hug. He said it is what Botham would’ve wanted. I pray we can all follow the example of this outstanding young man. Let us pray for peace in our community and around the world.
