For a while, I stayed out of the conversation regarding #GeorgeFloyd, not out of fear, but out of exhaustion. I try my best to be honest with all of you, and the honest truth is, I’m numb. I’m desensitized. I have a hard time connecting with what’s going on because I’ve seen it so many times before.
Year after year, month after month, the same incident happens. We see the same response, and the same lack of action from our government and our law enforcement. We hashtag names every month, and go back to our normal lives until it's time for another hashtag. Arguments ensue on Facebook and Instagram, we become even more divided as a nation, and then we do it all over again.
