George Floyd mattered; his life had value and today our community holds its memorial service to honor him. Over the past week, we, like many in greater Minneapolis-St. Paul and throughout the world, have felt deep sadness, anger and grief at the loss of yet another black life to a system of racism and inequality. Our hearts go out to George Floyd’s family and friends who both mourn and celebrate his life today. And we stand with our community that’s crying out for and demanding change.
