President's Message

Last week I was thinking about what I would say in my President’s Message. I mused about writing about week 11 of quarantine, but then Amy Cooper called the police on Christian Cooper for being Black and George Floyd died at the hands of police in broad daylight– just  weeks after the killings of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery made headlines – and our nation erupted with sadness and anger at the injustices that still exist. And, we are still in the midst of a global pandemic that has hit people of color harder than others. I realized that anything I was planning on saying would be trivial and inconsequential.
