St. Maria Goretti – Born in Corinaldo, Ancona, Italy, in 1902 an eighteen-year-old neighbor, Alexander, grabbed her from her steps and tried to rape her. When Maria said that she would rather died than submit, Alexander began stabbing her with a knife. As she lay in the hospital, she forgave Alexander before she died. Her death didn't end her forgivness, however. Alexander was captured and sentenced to thirty years. He was unrepentant until he had a dream that he was in a garden. Maria was there and gave him flowers. When he woke, he was a changed man, repenting of his crime and living a reformed life.
FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder met with community members in Ferguson, Missouri, on Wednesday and vowed a thorough civil rights probe into the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager that has set off 11 nights of racially charged unrest.
Holder, the first African-American to head the Justice Department, met with students and then community leaders at a community college during a visit to Ferguson for a briefing on a Justice Department investigation into the Aug. 9 killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
He later met privately with Brown's parents at the St. Louis U.S. Attorney's Office, but no details of that session were immediately available.
The riots in Ferguson, MO over hte kllling by police of an unarmed black man has been international news for 2 weeks.

The events in Ferguson are tragic. But they should also provide lessons for us.
These lessons should apply to all of us especially those who are in social media and who consider themselves part of the media.
I have not been to Ferguson. But there's a chance I may be there soon. I want to tell you about a crowdfunding project that is going on that I'm involved in. You will be seeing more soon. Check out my website www.JohnDaly.tv and also www.thebreakingnewsnetwork.com and www.BreakingFergusonNews.com
We are going to try to put citizen journalist tools in the hands of people in Ferguson Missouri. This way they can report the story is they see it. However we want to add journalistic skills and integrity and tools to the mix. So it's not just here's a video and put it up without context. There has to be reporting that goes along with it. I recently wrote a blog about not jumping to conclusions about what happened in Ferguson Missouri. My point: wait until all the evidence is in and all the evidence has been weighed in and analyzed. Yet on my Facebook and twitter pages the responses have been incredibly biased. When the initial autopsy reports came out saying that Michael Brown had been shot six times the conclusions of people on social media was incredibly wide. I won't go into them but let's just say that the conclusions of these people were based on incomplete information mixed with their own biases. Again my point: let's wait for all the analysis and the evidence to be reviewed before we make decisions. All we are doing on social media is muddying up the waters. If your aim is to get noticed by a certain group based on a certain list of biases, that's fine. But don't consider yourself an agent of the news and information that is helpful to the country. Some tips while posting.
Tonight we will be continuing the discussion of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson Missouri. We have a video tape of whom police say is Michael Brown robbing a convenient store which most believe is irrelevent to the investigation. We have word renownd medical examiner Michael Baden who has done an independant autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. And then there is all of this civil unrest in the town of Ferguson. Have we reverted back to ill fated times of the 1950's and 1960's?

Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) -- After another night of protests in Ferguson, Missouri, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has approved a second autopsy on the body of Michael Brown, the Justice Department said Sunday.
The autopsy will be conducted by a federal medical examiner, Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement.
"Due to the extraordinary circumstances involved in this case and at the request of the Brown family, Attorney General Holder has instructed Justice Department officials to arrange for an additional autopsy," the statement said.
"This independent examination will take place as soon as possible. Even after it is complete, Justice Department officials still plan to take the state-performed autopsy into account in the course of their investigation."
"If I had been told to get out of the street as a teenager, there would have been a distinct possibility that I might have smarted off," Paul writes. "But, I wouldn't have expected to be shot."
