2020 is almost half gone and for many this has been an awful year. COVID-19 hit America and the seriousness of it was ignored by the current Administration. COVID-19 is now a worldwide pandemic and over 100,000 Americans have died. Just a few months ago many supporters of the current Administration were saying that the flu kills than COVID-19. Now that statement may have true on the surface, but where they got it wrong, it generally takes the flu about a year to kill over 100,000 people, COVID-19 has done that in less than 6 months.
School is moving forward, I just have to catch up. I have lost a lot of motivation and intregrity with the program. I do plan on completing, but it just does not feel like it will have signifcant meaning once I do. I believe going forward I will be less vocal. I will make any changes recommended by my Dissertation Committee without comment. For now I am ready to just be done.
America has been turned upside down as a boiling point was reached in regard to the killing of Black men and women by police officers who continue to use the “I feared for my life” defense on individuals that are handcuffed, running away, having no weapon, or in other ways unable to pose a threat. This may be the year that Black men and women finally realize the inportance of their vote, time will tell. I am feeling mildly encouraged. I can only hope that this anger turns into mass voting in November.
