Memorials for Black Wall Street in Tulsa (and a mimosa tree). Also this weekend is the Tulsa Tough bike races and the town is full of gorgeous bikes and riders.
It’s been more than a year since Gloria Guillen learned her daughter apparently vanished while on duty at Fort Hood Army base. For tonight's new #ABC2020 , she tells @JohnQABC the support through tributes like murals and memorials “makes me very happy.”
Sadly, this is a familiar sequence of events: -Shooting -Police, FBI and Mayor press conferences -Makeshift memorials -Shooter profile -Funerals -Calls for change -No change
Memorials matter. There has been no center of grief during this pandemic. The virus has kept us apart, meaning so much of our unimaginable loss has taken place behind closed doors. We haven’t been able share our grief.
"We're here to protect our memorials " The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, June 13th, 2020.
"Our Nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values & indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials & unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities."
Beyond contempt... One of the thugs in London today to ‘save our country’ from people defacing memorials - caught urinating on the memorial for hero PC Keith Palmer who died as he tackled a terrorist & was awarded a posthumous George Medal. ?
