    I didn't go (I'm too vulnerable to the virus) but my daughter, granddaughter, her husband, and children went. They went for two reasons. You see, my granddaughter's husband is 6'4", athletically built and black. They have 3 children. My granddaughter, white), is a police department 911 Dispatcher. Do Black Lives Matter? You bet they do! How about Police Lives Matters? You bet they do! Do White or any other skin color matter? Of course they do. BUT - we need to rid the police departments of bullies and racists. A whopping majority of black people are law-abiding hard working citizens. A correspondingly majority of our police put their lives on the line every day to protect our citizens of any color. We need our judicial system worked on. We need to remind ALL PEOPLE that we have a responsibility to treat each other as we want to be treated. There should be no free passes or mistreatment because of color or any other excuse!
