My heart is broken. For black lives taken unjustly and too soon. For a society that forces grieving family members to say, "he was a good guy" as though being a human being isn't qualification enough to not be murdered on a Wednesday night. For police officers slain by an extremist in the name of hate. For a pattern of white supremacy that pervades our justice system, our news outlets, and our political process - that perpetuates and condones racism and excuses the behavior of those who still don't understand what is meant when it is said that Black. Lives. Matter.
We are in the midst of a national crisis and at a serious turning point in history. Which side will you be on?
