2020-06-02Excerpt from article: SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- Protesters going out in the streets to speak up against the death of George Floyd and police brutality in America are being faced with a high stakes choice: stay home amid a global pandemic or walk in solidarity with fellow demonstrators.
2020-06-03I saw this photograph on my Facebook feed and took a screenshot. As protesters take to the streets the choice between protecting oneself from the pandemic falls short of the pressing need to fight for racial equality. I heard an interview with a woman who is immuno-compromised. She said that she understood the danger she was putting herself in but that this was a non-decision. She would rather risk her health than to do nothing. Millions are protesting around the world, all faced with the reality of this movement during a plague year.
