Dear IC Community,

I want to take the opportunity to let you know that I could not just stand by and not say anything in regards to the tragic and unwarranted death of George Floyd.  While my words may not be perfect, silence is the same as supporting the actions and I refuse to be silent.  I’m saddened, confused, and angry, and I stand with all of those who are speaking out against this horrific and unfathomable situation.

Like so many of you, I woke up thinking about the gut-wrenching loss of George Floyd, an African-American man from Minneapolis who was killed last week while under police custody. Mr. Floyd is the third person of color since February to tragically and unjustly be taken away from us. Before him, we lost Ahmaud Arbery from rural Georgia, and Breonna Taylor from Louisville. My heart breaks for these three precious souls, and their families and friends. I just keep thinking of them.
