Ferguson

Last night was very disturbing watching the reaction to the Ferguson verdict. The issues are so explosive and I knew that if the verdict was not to indict their would be violence. The issues are so volatile and unfortunately this case has become the focus for so many unresolved social issues . I do not know all the facts that the grand jury examined so my opinion on what happened has little merit. However I do know that too many young kids of color die at the hands of the police and we must find ways in which these confrontations are altered. Lining up on either side of this one may reinforce all sorts of beliefs but it will do nothing to move us forward toward the ideal promised to all.
