Say her name.

Breonna Taylor.

Last night while on break at work I watched the FX show: The Killing of Breonna Taylor.

My heart broke all over again like the first time I heard her story.

Yes, I’ve heard the story of her death.

I mean you’d literally have to be living under a rock not to hear it but it never touched me like it did last night.

Say her name.

Breonna Taylor.

As the movie showed official statements, responses from her family and friends and official police reports it really hit me.

HER DEATH COULD HAVE BEEN ANY OF US.

Any person laying in her home next to her boyfriend preparing for bed suddenly shot and killed.

Say her name.

Breonna Taylor.

What shocked me most about the documentary was not the incident itself.

Though heartbreaking and truly devastating for anyone, the incident didn’t hit me nearly as much as the fact that these officers are still walking around free.

Free to go to the store.

Freedom to bond with their family.

But most importantly, free to LIVE.

Say her name.

Breanna Taylor.

As I fought back tears trying to finish the documentary I realized how far we have come as a nation, but how much further we still have to go.

There is so much more I could say but my heart is still so heavy and full I will leave it at:

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.” – Ben Franklin (and others)

I hope they find her justice.  I hope they give her peace.

Say her name.

Breonna Taylor.

Say her name.

Breonna Taylor.

Say her name.

Breonna Taylor.

Take care of you (and those around you) too,
