I am overwhelmed.

With the guilty verdicts for a murderer.

With sadness for the family and friends of George Floyd.

With happiness for the family and friends of George Floyd.

With relief that the universe righted itself a bit today.

With bitter sweetness.

With these words of Longfellow, written during the Civil War as his son fought in the Union army.

And in despair I bowed my head;
There is no peace on earth, I said;
For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men.
