“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Why do these senseless crimes against our black and brown brothers and sisters continue? How did we get here?
I witnessed a senseless murder unravel on the news; it was disturbing. The law enforcement officer responsible for taking Mr. Floyd’s life had no remorse or afterthought, as we watched it on the news and to see the other officers not step up to save this man. It was surreal!
In reality, all spectators watched an execution. So many screamed from the crowd to stop while this officer had his knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck as he was pleading, “I can’t breathe!” It was horrific!
And due to this crime against a fellow human by law enforcement, it has sparked riots throughout the states, violence practically in every corner to no end, fires, looting, and vandalism.
I believe that protest should be in peace, not violence. The outcome of the act of violence is detrimental to our humanity. Yes, I emphasize the word humanity because we all belong to one race, the human race. We all bleed the same.
Please! I need to make sense of it all. Thank you!
