Since Memorial Day, I have struggled to express my thoughts. Words aren’t adequate to express my feelings on George Floyd’s death. No living being deserves that kind of treatment. The photos and videos of him being abused and killed induce anger, nausea, and tears. I never knew him. For those who loved him, their pain is unimaginable.
The sad thing is, he isn’t the only person of color to have recently died at the hands of white people and police. A short time before George’s death, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor were also killed. The list of those who have been lost to violence is long. The logic behind their deaths is smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.
