Praying For The Family of Mike Brown
This morning I'm up getting ready for the day. It my sons first day of school of the school year. One in elementary and one in college. Today is also the funeral of Mike Brown who was killed in Ferguson, MO. That is not lost on me. As they get dressed, eat breakfast and prepared to leave home I realize that they are African American boys who although intelligent and crazy talented they will encounter things that I can't imagine.
On this day I think of Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Jordan Davis. I pray for their familes and their friends who are left to mourn and wonder "What if?" In so many ways my sons are them. I stay aware of that.
