Floyd: Heritage, History, & Heart

My Floyd.

This boy has changed my life in ways unfathomable, ways mere words cannot convey.

Named for a man of honor who fought off WW2 foes. Sharing a name with another whose life and murder have ushered in an era of reckoning, shifting the tides of racial reconciliation before global eyes. All held securely by legacy and kin.

In a time of pandemic and strife, of unlearning and rewriting national narratives and individual minds, may I be molded and made worthy of the memory and destiny enveloped in these letters five.

Floyd – the name of those who change the world and those who have changed mine.
