A truly uplifting story.
Antonio Gwynn is an 18-year-old high school senior in Buffalo, New York. Two years ago, Gwynn’s mother died and he was taken in by a friend, Duane Thomas. On May 29th, Gwynn participated in a peaceful protest against the brutal murder of George Floyd, marching for hours. Finally, tired, he went home to get some rest and watch videos of some of the nationwide protests. But, what he saw when he woke the next morning stunned him.
He saw that his hometown’s peaceful streets had turned violent after he left, with a confrontation between protesters and U.S. marshals in front of the federal courthouse, windows smashed at downtown businesses, and protesters reporting that they had been hit by police rubber bullets.
“I was sad to watch all of that. There was a huge mess downtown. I thought, ‘I should go out there and clean it all up.’”
