Today I attended an event honoring the life of George Floyd and protesting police brutality. There were guest speaker and prayers. It was an amazing feeling to support this cause and be surrounded by people demanding change and justice. At one point, they played a song by Sam Cooke titled ” A change is gonna come” The music didn’t properly, suddenly out of the crowd a young man who was white got up and sang the rest of the song for all of us, it was beautiful.
After the speeches we sat in silence for 8 minutes and 40 seconds, in honor of George Floyd’s death, it made me realize what a long time that was to pinned to ground with a knee on your neck, not being able to breathe, it’s heartwrenching. It was a powerful event for me and I am glad that I was able to attend and show my support, we all need to stand for injustice. Black lives matter!! #blm ❤ ✌
