The father of Ahmaud Arbery, Marcus Arbery, had a great message for all of us. We should listen to him.
The father of Ahmaud Arbery spoke to the media after his sons’ murderers were found guilty: “All lives matter, not just black children. We don’t want to see nobody go through this. I don’t want no daddy to watch his kid get shot down like that. It’s all our problem. It’s all our problem. So, hey, let’s keep fighting, let’s keep making this place a better place for all human beings. All human beings. Everybody.”
