If you turn on any cable or network news channel, you’ll be bombarded by despair and destruction, but that’s not what it looks like everywhere.

For example, there was one recent protest in Milwaukee, following the unjust killing of George Floyd, whose life ended after a former Minneapolis police officer held his knee on the 46-year-old man’s neck for nearly 10 minutes.

The ex-officer, Derek Chauvin, has since been arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Mr. Floyd’s death has sparked unjustifiable violent riots as well as peaceful demonstrations all around the country. While the former is getting plenty of attention, it’s also important to know there is reason to be hopeful, because not all of the protests look like that.

In Milwaukee, an army of protesters marched as they sang the popular worship song “Way Maker.”

As for the violence, even Mr. Floyd’s own family is calling for it to stop.

Mr. Floyd’s younger brother, Terrence, told ABC News, “The anger, damaging your hometown is not the way he’d want.” And during a speech at a rally in Minneapolis, he said, “Do this peacefully, please. … I highly doubt — no, I know — he would want y’all to be doing this.”

Award-winning entertainer Whoopi Goldberg has also demanded an end to violence.

“More nights with scared children is not a good night,” she said.

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.

Please assist us in the continuation of our work.
