In the midst of the pain of two epidemics: strength, love and passion (+ Photos)

June, 2020.- In the midst of pain, Laura White searches in the depths of her soul and heart for the inescapable strength, love and passion to inspire herself. The Covid-19 pandemic, protests against the murder of the American citizen George Floyd, and police brutality in the United States sadden her.

Despite the stress caused by these phenomena, the exhibition “Love Green”, which is considered by many to be absolutely beautiful, leaves their hands.

Added to it is the fear of being infected with the SARS-Cov-2 virus, caused by Covid-19, “although my health is much better, I have not received the results of my tests and, therefore, it is not safe to leave from home », he reflects.

Laura wanted deep in her heart to attend the Black Lives Matter rally. However, many of her friends, including the author of the photographs that illustrate this review, represented her.

“I am proud to live in this careful and progressive city, although we as a society have a LONG WAY to reach true social justice.”

The demonstration was organized entirely by high school youth. A large, very diverse crowd: people of all ages, races, and ethnicities took to the streets peacefully. The National Guard was standing behind the protesters.

There were no police at the State house, but they were lined up on the streets, but other people probably had different perspectives and felt that there was too much police presence.

But the pain for the death of a human being, killed by racist police brutality in the United States, is multiplied in the world. Demonstrations take place in the United Kingdom and Italy, among other nations.

In the central Piazza del Popolo in Rome, thousands of people spoke out against the murder of the American citizen George Floyd and any form of racism and discrimination.

‘I can’tbreath-black lives matter’ was the central motto of the massive gathering. (Photos: Rhode Island and Don Mays).(Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
