This week has been heavy with emotion as on Monday; we learned that we had reached 100,000 deaths for the Coronavirus and the highly controversial issue that has sparked protests and riots nationwide. The Death of George Floyd. Public health, economics, and racial tension have been hotly debated topics for along time, and when all three have a collision course, its like mixing Bleach with Ammonia and then pouring the deadly cocktail on to an open flame.

This afternoon there was a Police Brutality protest in Monument Square stemming from the George Floyd case in Minneapolis. It was good to see that people were willing to leave their homes and bring attention to a cause while wearing masks and social distancing.
