Not in America

“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!”

No, I don’t believe it. This video cannot be true. It could not happen in America. It could not occur in our beloved country of freedom. It could not take place in the city where the Statue of Liberty welcomes millions of people from the entire world, so that they could breathe freely under our flag. It could not happen in the city where the torch of the Statue of Liberty symbolizes the greatness of our hearts and our true justice system.

When I saw the video, I could not breathe myself, and I still cannot breathe. Tears are flowing down my face.

Jerzy Slobodow
