Then Covid hit, and I had to leave my job of 15 years. Now I had the time to explore this new toy, but what to enscribe? That is when the protests began in earnest, in my hometown of Richmond, Va. It became obvious to me that “Saying Their Names” would be perfect!

I researched numerous Black Lives Matter sites that had links to lists of these individuals. Learning about each person’s life, and how they
were murdered, really helped me raise my awareness of their plight in our society. The journey had just begun!
