Bishop Sharma Lewis issued a call to action against systemic racism, May 29, 2020. She wrote, “On Memorial Day, when the world was honoring and remembering all military men and women for their sacrifice to this country, Mr. George Floyd, another African-American man, while handcuffed and in police custody, was pleading for his life. His dying statement, ‘I can’t breathe,’ rings again in my ears just as it did in 2014 when Eric Garner used those same words as he was dying from being held in a chokehold by a New York Police Department officer. As I have reflected since Monday, I find my emotions range from sadness to anger to disbelief. I ask myself the simple questions – ‘How long, Lord? How long, Lord?'”
