A Protest for Justice - A Regional IssueIn light of the recent news in Ferguson I wanted to post photos I took when I went there to see first hand what was happening. As I sat nursing my broken leg watching and reading the news of the events that led up to the protests I felt uneasy and saddeded to see my city and comminities so broken and hurting. I had to go there. I took my kneeling scooter into the crowed and whitnessed a peaceful community of all races united together with one voice. As I read and watched the news I saw such a misunderstanding of our city.
