I am so sad to be starting off the Blogging Carnival for Nonviolence 2019 with this terrible, tragic story. But this is the reality. These are the times in which we live. Another Black person shot by the police, apparently for no reason. Once again, I ask, do Black lives really matter?
I am so upset and outraged about this. Fortunately, there is something we can do. We need solutions that work.
