Image Statement: When everything shut down and we all donned our masks, everyone was muffled. It was hard to understand others when they talked, if one was fortunate enough to even be around others. Even the reporters were muffled. The cries for justice were no longer muffled as demonstrators took to the streets… but even they weren’t loud enough for true justice to occur. They are still muffled to some ears.
