I’m pleased at the Ahmaud Arbery verdict. He can’t be brought back, but at least those who murdered him should serve time. I am overwhelmed with admiration for Ahmaud mother, Wanda Cooper Jones, who vowed to fight for justice and have several court cases pending separate to this one that has been ruled on. I also felt that the judge, Timothy Walmsley’s, comments were timeless – “In assuming the worst in others, we show our worst character”. This verdict gives me hope that their are people who understand and can work toward justice in America, still yet this countries true maturity can only be realised if murders based on race can be eliminated, and this requires a change in the heart, mind, and attitude of many people.
