The memorial is the second of three services held around the country to honor Floyd, a black man killed when a white police officer held his knee to Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes as other officers stood by. Floyd's death was ruled a homicide and all four officers have been arrested.

    I am so sorry for George Floyd. May God forgive his sins. Please also protest the killing of Muslims. “Peace at home peace in the world” Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.

      @Logic Bully of course it is, its always about religion. The religion of blackness. the religion of islam, the religion of marx, the cult of personality is the same thing no matter what you call it, and you’re all cunts for being in cults.

  3. 💗 Thank God for All the LOVE and HEALING that took place in this church❣ Best to stop watching right after the family and church sings in the Spirit near the end. After that, political people hijack it to tell people how to vote.
    The last “preacher”,
    with a bitter heart,
    sucks the LOVE, GRACE and healing right out of the room.
    IMO..He selfishly, inappropriately used
    this service of healing…
    to try to make HIMSELF famous
    by fanning the flames of political and racial divisiveness. PLEASE KEEP POLITICAL AND RACIAL DIVISIVENESS OUT OF GOD’S HOUSE❣💗

    For all those who didn’t love this memorial for George Floyd. Take a look in your mirror. You are the problem.
