Here we are in 2020 and the world has sunk into madness. So many killings of Black people being killed by the police. I know it breaks your heart to see such a minority of officers, dishonoring your chosen profession. Again I want to Thank You for giving your life and service to protect our community. I know your granddaughters (Nelcene McCloud, Lillian Howell-McCloud, and Cleo McCloud) and your Great Great Great Grandson (Joshua Delaney) are with you and I hold on tight to all of your memories till I can join my family and be released from this insanity. COVID-19 running rampant, Blacks being lynched, Officers putting chokeholds on our people. Enough when do we get our justly deserved reparations.
