Candlelight Vigil

Today, I attended a candlelight vigil for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others killed by police brutality and racist violence. This was a Somerville event, organized by people of color who have formed a new organization called Just Us Somerville. It ended with 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silence, after which we were asked to leave the area in the silence that George Floyd heard as he cried out for help in the last minutes of his life.
