KENOSHA ⏤ I decided to record my initial thoughts following the guilty verdicts returned against Derek Chauvin for murdering George Floyd.

It’s taken me a long time to appreciate and understand my grandfather, Arzell “Flukie” Thompson, and how his kindness is the most apartment trait he imparted on my family. Listen to this episode to listen to me explore that role of kindness in his life, and now my life.  — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mind-of-daniel-thompson/support

Because I feel like maybe some people are feeling a little in shock by the Chauvin verdict as, historically, this is just the fairytale ending for people of color. 

Not the one we actually get when loved ones are taken from us, like George Floyd was taken from family and friends.

In fact, I found myself dealing with complex and, at times, confusing emotions following the verdict.

Because it’s justice. It is.

There’s joy in that. There’s rest and a sigh of relief in the hope in that.

But there is much further to go, and some of us are currently very tired.
