a year! We all agree it
was an usual one filled with many challenges and sad events. If I put the events in chronological order,
the first one that shocked us was the pandemic.
Gradually we learned about COVID-19. But it was confirmed in March and
we had to face the reality.
Later, we watched a live murder in front
of our eyes. We watched how George Lloyd
was killed on May 25. I watched the
funeral through live streaming on June 4. As I was listening to Reverend Al Sharpton I was crying hard. It was
touching. So on June 7, I attended the
demonstration for Black Lives Matter in Glendale, even though I was very
careful not to catch or transmit the virus. I wore my mask and did not touch,
hug, or shake hands with anybody. But there were many people close to each
other. It was inspiring to see many
Armenians and Latinos united. Fighting
for justice was important. Many Glendale School District's administrators and school
board members participated. We saw many riots and rallies all over the world.
