As I reflect on all that is happening across America in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the outrage that resulted from it, I have a heavy heart. After a 30-year career in law enforcement, I can tell you with certainty that it is a difficult profession but respect for the life and dignity of all people is paramount and the hallmark of a civil society. We appreciate the men and women of law enforcement but we cannot associate with those who abuse authority and have reckless disregard for the citizens they are sworn to protect and serve. I am hopeful that this tragedy will bring, somehow, a better day of racial harmony in our nation. Here at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, we remain committed to serving families in all communities and we celebrate our differences and diversity.
