“Dear PoPville,

I imagine I am not alone in wanting to join the protests downtown but not doing so because of personal reasons (in my case a young kid, but what for others may be work, vulnerabilities to COVID, transportation, etc.). I would like someone to organize some sort of peaceful but noise making protest that people can do from home at a coordinated time to show support, but having not seen anything yet. So I’m writing to see if you would post something. It’s not too creative, but I would propose having everyone honk their car horns, bang pots and pans, etc. at 8:46 (amount of time Chauvin, the cop, kneeled on Flloyd) in the morning (night time seems unfair to people with kids) on Wednesday (to give it time to hopefully spread) for one minute.”
