Wanted to share some good news from this week. Yesterday, I had my first ever published byline in a newspaper. The story was about the re-opening of the Brook Run Dog park and pet owner experience during the pandemic.

As a Georgian, the story of the week is that the General Assembly here passed a hate crimes bill. The sad reality is that it took the death of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd to get the law passed. We are waiting for the Governor to sign it.

The confederate statues are a blight and painful reminder of the south’s rebellion to uphold slavery, bigotry, and the oppression of African Americans. They have long since needed to come down. These are merely participation trophies to a losing cause.
