A 4-year-old girl comforts her distraught mother minutes after Philando Castile was murdered in front of them: “It’s okay, Mommy…. It’s okay, I’m here with you.” Her mother, Lavish Reynolds, showed extraordinary composure, narrating the situation and disputing the officer’s version of events, all while her blood-soaked boyfriend slumped beside her. The child will need lots of care and healing after what she witnessed, but she is a hero. The one ray of hope in this horror is her bravery and love. Her spirit is strong. At 8 pm this evening (July 7), there is a protest at the White House; I plan to go. This extrajudicial killing has been going on a long time. We have a long struggle ahead to put a stop to it.
