Yesterday was another day to Stand On Every Corner, and, for the first time in a new location, I stood alone.
I have been struggling with how much to include Wee One on with regards to my activism, which has stepped up in the past year or so.
The COOLEST thing happened yesterday.
As I have written several times lately, I was raised in St. Louis. Police action in one of our suburbs, Ferguson (yes, legally it’s a small town, but it’s really a suburb of St. Louis), has been the center of protests around the world over the past week, but especially in the U.S. The night it was announced the officer would not face criminal charges for killing a young man, different parts of the city – literally – burned. Cars and buildings were on fire and in other ways destroyed and fire crews couldn’t get to them for the force and crush of people on the streets.
