Simon Gates: Cannot see the forest for the trees

I read the letter in The Union from Diane Krage. She hit the problem squarely on the head. The problem is that she doesn’t get it. It’s not about George Floyd, the person, although it was a sad moment in our history. It is about what he represents. It is a time to reflect on the progress we have made and the long way we still have to go. And, it seems, that we have a lot further to go than many of us thought just a few years ago.
