Letter: A touching tribute to George Floyd
Supplied/Lucy McEwen

Dear editor:

While I was at Niagara-on-the-Lake's Voices of Freedom Park on Monday, a young mother came by with her three- or four-year-old son, Graham.

They brought some lovely flowers and a hand-painted sign in memory of George Floyd, the black American who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes.

I was so moved by the actions of this mother and son that I added more flowers.

I hope other NOTL citizens take note and join the floral display in honour of George Floyd and recognize that Black Lives Matter.

Lucy McEwen
