There’s so much unrest in our nation now. Just when we were adjusting to our new normal because of COVID-19, we’re now being faced with a national divide over the death of George Floyd.
It’s beyond sad, frustrating, and infuriating, to say the least. To be honest, there aren’t words that would it justice at all and that’s what we’re all seeking now. From our leaders on down we’ve known of the deficiencies and have been living with it partly, I’m sure, because we feel we had to. We’re living our daily lives and just trying to get by, while our government makes decisions on our behalf that don’t do us any good. But we deal with it.
The time for dealing with it all is over. We’re not only exhausted, but we’re also done being treated horribly while working to keep our government employed. After all, they work for us. We pay their salaries.
We’re looking for answers, for help, for understanding. When we don’t get any of that, people get angry and we’ve had time to let it marinate. Most of the population has been kept inside without much to do aside from watch TV. Not that our Country wouldn’t be paying attention normally, it’s that we’re all hyper-aware in this moment. People are understandably angry and want answers, and most importantly they want JUSTICE. We want it for George Floyd and all those that came before him. We also want to know that it’s our voices that are heard above the desk in the Oval Office, and instead, replace them. Let them truly speak for us, their voices and words reflecting our needs and not that of their own. The goal of government should not be to make their own pockets fatter while the majority of the country’s population suffers financially, now with disease and fear.
This is the land of the free. Our voices should be heard.
