Good morning from the lakeside deck ~

Do you know his name?
George Floyd

an innocent black man
held down by force
until he died
face down in the street
“I cant breathe”
“Mamma”
“I cant breathe”
murder
in front of our eyes
undeniably
he takes his last breath
and awakens a spirit
unleashed
as people stand up
saying enough is enough
rules need to change
policing redefined
back to community protection
we are not a war zone or battlefield
demilitarizing our police
from 9/11 terrorism mind set

us against them
rise people rise
now is the time
take new steps
to the light
to freedom
to civil rights for all
we are all equal under the law
freedom rings

Now he is Free

Will you remember his name?
