    Hang in there Helen. Lex and I live in Los Angeles County and we feel the same. Hopefully, real change will be enacted and voices heard. – Neek

      Thank you 🙂 Just to be clear, though, these are not my words.

I hope you guys stay safe, and that, as you say, real change will be enacted as a result of this 🙂

        Yes, I understood that when I read it. We live in Los Angeles Helen. Rachel does know what it is like to be black in America as well as Lex’s brother-in-law. It sucks. Change needs to happen, real change because lives depend on it. – Neek

    Floyd was from here. March in memorial – to honor his name. You’d love the murals going up, George. Those you mentored will not forget

    An excellent post. I’ve left my comment there, rather than here, Helen.

  4. Rachel seems like an AMAZING woman, I am following her too now, thanks for sharing her story Helen
