‘My Family Is God-Fearing’: George Floyd’s Brother Gives Powerful Speech Demanding Peace By Tré Goins-Phillips for Faith Wire
GNN Note – Normally, during the daytime, or really any time, the TV is not turned on. Monday June 1 it was turned on with since our country had been under siege the past 3-4 days. Riots, looting and marauders running the streets usually catches my attention and it seemed important to keep an ear to the ground.
When Terrence Floyd showed up at the location where his brother, George, had been murdered this made me stop what I was doing and pay attention. Please watch the video below, if you’ve not seen the entire comments. It is impassioned, loving and angry all at the same time. The country needed to hear this, from this man, at this time. Take the 6 minutes required to listen to his words, then pray and then listen for God’s words.
In a powerful speech delivered during a prayer vigil Monday, George Floyd’s younger brother Terrence called on protesters to demonstrate peacefully, rebuking the riots that have broken out across the country.
George Floyd was killed one week ago by a former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on his neck for nearly 10 minutes, until he died. Mr. Floyd was unarmed and cooperative. The officer has since been arrested and charged with murder.
Since then, protests have broken out. While there have been countless peaceful demonstrations, there have been numerous violent riots around the U.S.
Terrence Floyd’s speech — the continuation of his message of peace — called an immediate end to the violence.
