“I got my short comings and my flaws. I ain’t better than nobody else. But the shootings that’s going on, man, I don’t care what hood you’re from, man, or where you at, man. You know I love you, man. Put the guns down, man. That ain’t what it is.” – George Floyd
George Floyd moved to Minnesota for a fresh start — an opportunity to better himself and to be a better father.
And while so many now know the Houston native by his full name, those who knew him best called him Floyd.
He worked security at a restaurant where he developed a reputation as someone who had your back and was there for you when you were down.
“Knowing my brother is to love my brother,” Philonise Floyd, George’s brother, said Tuesday.
“He’s a gentle giant, he don’t hurt anybody.”

A Riot is the Language of the Unheard

I know I’m a little late, but I wanted to post this in tribute and memory of George Floyd. This never should have happened…again. We should be way passed this as a country. Instead it seems we continually make the same mistakes over and over again. When will this country ever learn? I hope that together we learn to make this a better place in which to live for ALL of us and for our children and that justice will be served.

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.” – Matthew 6:5-6
“I can’t breathe!” – George Floyd (May 25, 2020)
My heart goes out to the family of George Floyd. I’m so sorry this happened. I hope in some way our country learns from this horrific act of cold-blooded murder.
