Does is feel like the weeks are growing progressively longer and more depressing, or is that just me? This week is right up there among the worst of the last few years, I’d say.

The country has been in upheaval since video emerged of a Minneapolis police officer murdering George Floyd. Kevin Keatts tweeted out a statement about this on Saturday evening:

Like many of you, I’ve watched and witnessed the events of the past few days and I’ve tried to make sense of it all. I’ve tried to explain to my boys how all of this is still possible in 2020. This week it was George Floyd and my heart goes out to his entire family. How do we stop this from happening in the future to our kids, our brothers, or myself? Our path forward must be one of change, peace, compassion towards manking and a willingness to do better collectively as a society. We must all work together to help end racial injustice. This must stop!

(I don’t recommend reading any of the responses to this tweet, on account of it’s Twitter.)
