I wasn’t going to use my blog to talk about subjects like this as they are far too heavy to cover on a beauty blog, but I don’t know what to say or how to express what I’m feeling today…I’ve struggled all week, I’ve struggled since I saw the video of George Floyds life leave his body, while an absolute disgrace of a being continued applying pressure – with a smirk on his face clearly enjoying the moment – to his neck cutting off his air supply.
