The Words of the Prophets

The aftermath of a Washington D.C. riot May 31 2020 in response to the death of George Floyd. The bicyclist stopped to read the message written on the building wall, and I thought it was a profound moment. The effect of this captured moment reminds me of the 1960s song, The Sounds of Silence.
