225 days have passed since former Tulsa Police Officer (TPD) Betty Shelby got away with murder. And today marks 387 days since G.T. Bynum assumed the role as Mayor of Tulsa.

After analyzing the roots of this word, it’s clear that we have failed as a city at reconciliation. At what point do we begin the hard work of genuine, working reconciliation?
