Editor, New Canaanite,
Last week was a difficult one.
We passed the 100,000 mark of deaths from COVID-19. We were traumatized by the horrific murder of George Floyd by four Minneapolis police officers. We watched our president move to militarize our streets.
Locally, we saw the chair of our Police Commission tear down heartfelt signs, calling them “litter” with a shameful insensitivity to the historic moment. We saw our first selectman force the resignation of Mike Handler, our guiding light through all kinds of emergencies over the past two decades. But on Thursday, hope was renewed—a warm light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
