7. Thank you for this great summary. As I think back in history I realize that demonstrations like this

one in Ferguson MO have often been the catalyst that brought about change. Sometimes it was outright war like WWII. The demonstrations I am thinking about were the ones against Vietnam and our more recent wars, the civil rights demonstrations, women's rights clear back to the suffragettes, the labor movement and its many demonstrations and many I have probably left out.

Let this action by these young people in Ferguson MO bear fruit not only in their own community but throughout the nation. There has been way too much of this type of violence against people who cannot defend themselves from it. And there are too many attempts to restrict the vote and take our rights away. May all these problems be addressed as a result of the courage we saw this past two weeks.
