Civil Unrest Lies in the Open Wounds of the Unheard

 

Brothers and Sisters,

While in the midst of a global pandemic, recent events happening across the country have forced us to face another virus head on, the virus of systematic racism. Innocent lives have been sacrificed, most recently in the deaths of George Floyd, during a blatant and gross abuse of power by a police officer in Minnesota, Ahmaud Arbery, chased down while jogging down the street in Georgia, and Breonna Taylor, a first responder in Kentucky gunned down while she slept.

During this time of civil unrest, we stand in solidarity with the victims' families and loved ones. As brothers and sisters we are united in the grief of too many lives lost, and we demand accountability and justice and total inclusion of our black and brown communities.

Within our hopes for a more peaceful and just society lies the next generation of leaders in the wings ready to fly. Don't let the seeds of anger consume you; instead, remain rooted in love and hope, as one.

Be safe and take care of one another,
