I might be protesting in Missouri if I lived there. This is a modern day civil rights throwback. You don’t just get to shoot a kid SIX TIMES. What the hell is happening? Here’s a condolence letter from Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, to Michael Brown’s parents. It’s a bit of loveliness in the belly of so much violence. The intense loss these two families have suffered feels bigger than this page.
The goings on in Ferguson are being widely covered and publicized. And i can’t help but think it’s the right thing. This is crazy town on steroids, yes, but to let this go would be wrong. I’m not in favor of the violence, but I do stand with the people who won’t let this lie. It shouldn’t. It can’t. And I hope it will not.
