After weeks of unrest and media defined ' uncertainty ' violence seems inevitable on Ferguson, Missouri and to a degree it seems planned. The national guard has been called out and literally thousands of law enforcement officers are there waiting for an excuse to ' fear for their lives '. Surely we need to pray for our Brothers and Sisters and everyone else in Ferguson, but this is not just about one town, there have been many other incidents in this country’s history that are just as egregious. However, the statement this and other events like it make about America and how it treats its people is of much more importance. Because until that aspect is addressed it’s just a matter of time until the next Mike Brown is killed. Join us this Sunday, November 23rd from 2p-4p CST for this most important discussion.
