Take a moment to pray and reflect. When you are ready, share the preface with your children.
If they seem ready, move into Ahmaud Arbery’s story.
I want to share with you something that has been in the news recently. It’s a story about Ahmaud Arbery, an African American young man who was recently killed by two white men. I know that this will be a bit difficult for us to talk about because of the emotions it might bring up. We might feel sad or angry or confused-and that’s okay. If either of us starts to feel like it’s too much to think about, we will take a break and come back to it later. Okay?
