Where Do We Go From Here?

George Floyd was brutally killed in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020. Four former Minneapolis police officers have been charged for the crime. My heart breaks for Mr. Floyd’s family, especially his children who will not be able to grow up with their father in their lives. My heart also breaks as a human, father, black man, and fellow hospitality and tourism professional. Where we find ourselves as a community and nation goes well beyond my professional role. It is difficult but true to say that as a black man in America, I know it could’ve been me, my sons or my grandsons that were killed.
