The Ferguson, Mo. saga won’t last always. This image shocker caused all races to think of each other as either good or bad, period. But maybe I can help this cause forward ... today.
We should ask Colin Powell to visit two grave sites with Michael Brown’s father and mother in Missouri. The first being the most important because it symbolizes “being heard” and the other “forgiveness.” Together these visits of flowers will represent racial balance ... rebounding.
Now the being heard and forgiveness stories are for the next letter. Until then, think about what Dr. Martin Luther King would do. And about what the two graves?
P.S. on to a new thing since East St. Louis ain’t feeling it.
