The climate in the country now is depressing. The Cavid-19 pandemic, the tragic death of George Floyd and other recent police shootings cast a long shadow over the summer adear.
I only see the pandemic getting worse. People are not doing wee at face masks and social distancing. The large number of protesters is likely to kickstart the flair up again, but even around town I see many ignoring the precautions.
As to the protests - they have become pretty universal across the major cities and it is disappointing to see the carnage from the rioting. I take his family at their word when they say that George would not want to see his city torn up. There is a feeling by many that are are some agitators who have stirred up trouble - setting fires while the majority are peaceful.
It is indeed a sad time for America. We need leadership and we are not only not getting leadership, but we are getting agitation that only makes matters worse. I pray that this ends soon and we have leadership again in Washington that we can depend on. This nation needs to heal
