“I am tired. First, there was the unfathomable health and economic catastrophe caused by Covid-19. And now there is this.

Ahmaud Arbery, shot and killed as he jogged in his neighborhood. Breonna Taylor, killed by police while she lay in bed in her home. Christian Cooper, an avid birder, threatened with the police and treated as a mortal threat by a white woman in Central Park. And George Floyd, killed by a Minneapolis police officer who suffocated him with a knee to his neck as the world watched.”
