Horrifying

I am so angry and horrified at the murder of George Floyd.

I could only stomach a small amount of the video, and I cannot imagine how people of color feel about it. I dont feel qualified to speculate, not being of color myself. I do know what it feels like, to not be heard, but only in the sense of the alcoholic family.

I just watched on the news a semi truck drive through thousands of protesters in Minneapolis.

I have been living through rioting in Saint Paul, not knowing if the fires will reach us, if the looters and anarchists will come our way.

I am hopeful the protests will enact change. I dont know what it looks like, but hopeful for change that works. That people of color are seen and heard and needs are met.

I hope for better than what people have now.

That’s all the positivity I can muster right now.
