It’s been two volatile weeks for our country as peaceful protests turned into mayhem over the unecessary death of George Floyd at the hands of police officer Derek Chauvin. Black Lives Matter was the mantra, chanted in cities large and small throughout the U.S. and echoed in 20 countries around the world.

The resulting violence at the hands of domestic terror groups such as Antifa, has destroyed black businesses through destruction and looting, defaced national monuments, including those dedicated to black soldiers, and snuffed out the lives of 19 innocent individuals, many of whom were also black.
