We remember

Today is the third anniversary of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville that led to the deaths of Heather Heyer, and state police Jay Cullen and Berke Bates. It exposed racism as something that had always been here. How has our community changed as we revisit the trauma of that weekend?

How do you remember and mark this day? What have you learned about white supremacy in this country? Are you praying with your feet?

  1. This one still haunts me. It exposed the sleeping monster of this country. The monster woke up, angry and ready for battle. I do not think others in the country fully grasped the power of the monster. I do not think I have stopped praying with my feet and mind and soul since that day. My prayer is “never again.”
