As we take in the ramifications of the Guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial, it is an opportunity to express our human feelings, the relief, pain, sorrow, outrage, and the fear that are normal and appropriate human responses to the horrific death of George Floyd. We must redouble our efforts to ensure that no individual and no family has to experience this pain and injustice again. We lift our voices and thoughts in solidarity with all the diverse people of this country, and take the steps necessary to change the culture which has fermented the policies and structures that have marginalized and killed people of color for centuries. Then and always to affirm the spiritual truth; Black Lives Matter!
