Condoleezza Rice: Floyd’s Horrific Death Should Move America to a Positive Direction
“Floyd’s horrific death should be enough to finally move us to positive action,” the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice wrote in an oped on Washington Post.
“Perhaps this is like the moment in 1955 when Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus,” Rice wrote. “Or perhaps this is like that fateful Sunday in September 1963, quite personal to me, when a bomb in a Birmingham church killed four girls from my neighborhood and shook our nation to its core.”
“Protests must lead to each American to “individual responsibility,” Rice continued.
Any call to action will be empty if it does not move us to individual responsibility. We all have a role to play in moving our country forward, in ensuring that our democracy delivers not just for those who have but also for those who seek and for those in need.
