My heart is broken.
That poor boy.
Barely a man, and begging for his life.
He should never have been put in that situation. He should never have been treated that way. He should never have had to try to negotiate for his life. It just should not have happened.
That sweet boy.
That delicate soul.
Is this story tragic enough?
For those who called George Floyd a criminal, or claim that those who resist arrest deserve brutality, will this story change their minds?
How many names? How many tragedies? How much pain and suffering must we endure?
How many lives are we willing to sacrifice in order to maintain the status quo?
People are dying for being different.
And people are staying silent.
