Today marks one year since George Floyd was murdered by now ex-convicted police officer Derek Chauvin.
The killing of George Floyd which millions witnessed take place on video rocked the soul of the world causing people from all different backgrounds to come together to protest and put a final stamp in history against racism that enough is enough.
Protest erupted and calls for police reform grew louder as the images of George Floyd taking his last breathe on the pavement in the streets of Minneapolis began to spread across the world leaving an unforgettable realistic imprint of the real struggles African American men, women, boys, and girls face on a day to day basis when encountering police officers.
George Floyd leaves behind several who love him including children, brothers, cousins, and the millions of humans who simply empathized, sympathized, grieved, felt, and wished they could have helped him as he lay dying and crying out for his life for more than nine minutes while Chauvin continued to kneel on his neck eventually choking the life out of him.
Many feel that though Chauvin has been found guilty there is still a long way to go with policing in America.
Mr. Floyds death helped to bring forth the George Floyd in Policing Act which was introduced last year by Democrats in the United States Congress.
The bill aims to fight police misconduct, excessive force, and racial bias among several things dealing with policing in America.
Though today makes one year Mr. Floyd has been laid to rest the words of his 6-year-old daughter Gianna Floyd still linger and remain true.
“Daddy Changed the World.”
