Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, ‘the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.’ Though there is a bit of relief #derekchauvin was found guilty today, I’m still saddened that it took this much work and overwhelming facts for black people to get a miniscule act of justice. 1 out of 100s of 1000s is not a pattern or progress. However, today’s verdict provides accountability. We must continue our work to root out the racial injustice that haunts our society and continue the necessary fight to obtain the EQUALITY we all deserve!
Took a moment to reflect and as I did, I smiled because progress is being made. I am grateful to witness the little steps that one day soon become monumental ones towards obtaining equality in full form (fingers crossed).
Peace and Forever Blessings,
