I haven’t been posting much on Twitter or Instagram recently, because I have been processing the difficult, sometimes horrific, events and developments of the past weeks. I don’t have anything significant to contribute to online discussions. I want to make more space for those who do.
However, I must make my solidarity with my fellow citizens clear: Black Lives Matter.
We need real police reform. Citizens should not fear calling on police for help or protection. Police should not consider citizens enemies or animals.
Because I deeply believe that all people are created equal and that no one is above the law, I need to reflect on how, as a citizen, I can do more to make that so in our country.
