Not again! When will it stop?

We seek justice for George Floyd and all black people around the world suffering senseless brutality at the hands of police.

Black lives matter.

Sadly, there are some people who choose to loot or destroy property during respectful vigils and orderly protests. I don’t get that. What good will come from damaging our communities?

As we’re still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m also deeply concerned that people are not social distancing.

So, please let’s go back inside. After all, home is our first teacher. Let’s talk, listen, grieve, express anger, then console one another. Let home be the place where we all learn how to love, not how to hate.

Black lives matter.
