What should be understood from the very start is that the protesters in San Antonio were mourning. When we went to the Black Lives Matter march last Saturday, we realized very quickly that everyone around us was grieving, and in a very significant way, we were too. We were grieving the death of George Floyd, the death of Breonna Taylor, the death of Ahmaud Arbery, and so many more.

Our pain is so important because it stressed the reason why we were really out on the streets that day; to peacefully protest.
