This past week has been the most painful and heartbreaking week in the memory of Minneapolis’ residents. I never thought I would see the entire area around the high school my daughters graduated from destroyed by fire and looting. But the anger at the killing of George Floyd has triggered some long seeded pain here and now around the country. My daughter has gone to protest and though I am filled with fear when she goes I support her desire to be heard. A lot of my friends live in the areas that are hard hit and Saturday night I read on Facebook about their plans to defend their own neighborhoods. Sadly, many small businesses and non-profits have been sacrificed in this cause and now they will need to rebuild.
I wanted to share a few of the places I am donating to with you. If you are in a place to give please consider a donation.
