EIGHT FORTY SIX


By Vernalee

In outrage, a nation watched Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin holding his knee on George Floyd for Eight Minutes and Forty Six seconds as Floyd said, "I can't breathe" and called upon his Mother.

People of all colors have protested and Floyd has been laid to rest.

We have witnessed injustice being dished out to our Black men for years ... long before Emmett Till's lynching in 1955 in Money, Mississippi. We have marched with Rev. Martin Luther King, Fannie Lou Hamer, Glen Allan's own Jake Ayers, and other civil rights activists who have fought for our rights in every category as "minute" as being able to drink from the same water fountain as Whites.

Now, the proof is in the pudding.

"Is a change gonna come?"

The call to action is upon all of us.

What happens from here?

Time and what we do will tell!
