I am listening to your stories about the pain of racism. The wounds, recent or decades old, remain excruciating. I am grateful to those of you who have shared your ideas and hopes for change. Your ongoing input is essential for Samford to become a better place.

Something like scales are falling from the eyes of millions of Americans as we confront the fact that many of us who are white have done far too little to oppose racism. We must achieve the elimination of racism from the root and branch of our lives and our institution.

Like you, my thoughts in recent days have been dominated by the video of the horrific killing of George Floyd. Sadness overwhelms my other emotions this morning. Anger, of course, is fueled at least in part because the video of Mr. Floyd is one of far too many examples of injustice. We feel the pain in the depths of our hearts.
