As I lay to rest, I think of my family on the other side of the world waking up.
I think of his family, their grief, their sorrow, their pain.
Why have we allowed a vicious cycle to continue? Why have we not learned anything from history?
Violence begets violence. Injustice begets injustice. Anger begets unrest. Silence begets deafness.
Listening begets understanding. Actions begets change. Calm begets peace. Voices begets unity.
Dear Ferguson, we stand with you in unified prayer, in peaceful solidarity, in the right fight for justice and change.
