The emotions were high when I was walking around downtown LA on Saturday.
I could feel the anger, fear and rage. Enough is enough. There’s only so much you can take before the breaking point, we’ve again reached that point. Police brutality and racial injustice are nothing new here. I remember the riots in 1992. They happened not too far from where I grew up. I remember being outside and seeing all of the smoke from the burning buildings. I remember seeing the graphic footage of looting, violence and shootings all happening live on the news. I remember the anger, fear and rage.
It hurts to see how divided and broken we are as a country, but it’s truly inspiring to see people of every color unite all around the nation to make a stand. Enough is enough. It’s time to stop focusing on our differences and start realizing that we have more in common with one another than we know. It’s time for change. If that doesn’t happen, the country will continue to burn.
