When we planned our trip to Denver, we had no idea that we were booking a hotel that would be smack dab in the middle of the George Floyd protests – just a block away from the state capitol.  The first afternoon, we went to the capitol and saw peaceful protesters for ourselves.  After dark, a small bunch of protesters tagged buildings and vehicles with graffiti, broke windows and set fires.  It was both moving and heartbreaking to watch it in real time from our hotel window, three nights in a row.
