The past week was an unusually quiet week around the parsonage. It enabled me to do something that I have wanted to do all summer long. Nothing. I am not bragging or anything, but I can do nothing right up there with the best of them.
The 2019-2020 school year is finally in the books and what a ride it turned out to be. From all things predictable and expected to mayhem in just a few short days, this year is one that will be long remembered. Students on Spring Break were “rewarded” with more time off than they bargained for. And with the onset of COVID-19, all UIL activities were canceled, distance learning became the norm, and everyone was focused on the daily news to see what was to happen next in the world around us.
AUSTIN — Gov. Greg Abbott pledged to institute police reforms when he met with the Houston family of George Floyd, who was handcuffed and killed by police in front of a Minneapolis convenience store on May 25.
Matter protest was held in front of City Hall Thursday, June 4. The protest was peaceful and did not support any sort of violence or looting. Protestors were able to bring signs, many of which supported justice for George Floyd, the man who was killed by police in Minneapolis. The man pictured facing the crowd above voiced that their protest was not there to do rioting or looting because that defeats the purpose of their protest. The Aransas Pass Police Department later posted on Facebook they were appreciative of the peaceful nature of the protest. Photo by Sabrina Hutton A Black Lives
