Breaking the Cycle
I stared at the video in silence.
My room was quiet as I started watching. So was my breathing. I had been warned the video was inhumane. We were all warned of that, yet I wanted to view it anyway. I felt it was important to see what happened.
Like many of you, I watched in horror as Memphis police officers savagely beat 29-year-old Tyre Nichols. I listened to this man (my own son’s age) call out for his mother. "Ma Ma Ma." It made me sick to my stomach.
