Thank you Utah!
I addressed in a previous email the protests that we have seen over the last several days. I echo the words of my friend and colleague Rep. Sandra Hollins (African-American member of the legislature), along with those of Salt Lake City Mayor Mendenhall and Governor Herbert. There needs to be change. There needs to be a meaningful and real conversation about race and police relations. What happened in Minneapolis was horrific. We encourage peaceful protests. Thank you so much to those who helped to stop the violence and property damage. Violence and property damage distracts from the legitimate message.
One of the things that helped my spirits was the number of people who wanted to help. Immediately. This video emerged last Sunday morning. It didn't take long for Utahns to kick in to help. Click on the following to see the video:
