Derek Chauvin lit a match. Same match that thousands of other cops have lit over the past 240 years. Only this time, America is burning. Enough!

I heard more of the story of the arrest this morning and it was heart-breaking. I hope these services can bring closure to all the people who are hurting. After, I hope they use their voting power to bring about the changes that so many of us want to see.

We can hope this won't be for nothing, but there have been so many times now that it has been for nothing.

RIP sometimes hope and faith are all we have when experience doesn't help.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love." - Paul the Apostle

I don't understand "closure."
Please explain what that is.
Is this a thing you have personally experienced; closure?

Thanks.

closure
3. a feeling that an emotional or traumatic experience has been resolved

I can't think of a truly traumatic experience I've endured which feels "resolved."
At best I can say it's behind me. But it's not resolved. The trauma is still there.

I think this is a made-up definition of how people process grief, made up by people who don't want to hear about it anymore.
