For some when they hear the word protest, they think it means violence. They think of burnt out cars, looted stores, violent confrontations with the police, tear gas, and molitov cocktails. I have never been in a midst of a protest like that. From what I have found, the vast majority of protesters just want their voices heard. They march, carry banners and signs, sing (although there was no singing on Saturday for COVID) demanding that society change. They do so peacefully. There is no violence. May people continue to raise their voices and work for change. May all of us work for a world that is more just and loving. And hopefully peace shall continue to reign in all communities.
