We are shocked, outraged, and saddened by the events of yesterday. We lost a brother: Mike Brown. Mike was an unarmed black teenager shot and killed by a police officer.
Though we do not know the entire story, and the other half of the story continues to change, we DO know that shooting an unarmed teenager is simply WRONG. We are tired of the excuses, and we want CHANGE. Our young black men are continually the victim, and this has to stop.
That change can begin with YOU. With ME. What can we do? Send us your ideas. Your thoughts. Let’s work together, St. Louis, and make a change so ALL our children MAKE IT HOME.
From the Project Peace GoFundMe site: “We are proud to announce that our own International recording artist Kyjuan and Murphy Lee of The St. Lunatics are starting a program to help lead our youth. The primary focus will be on adolescent peer to peer interactions, emphasizing the importance of split second decisions that can change lives forever.” Read more about their efforts for peace in our community. Mobilized to create awareness, and move our youth to better choices to MAKE IT HOME.
Our hearts, our prayers, and most importantly: our actions are with the family of Mike Brown. His grieving parents have our condolences, and our HELP. Community action and involvement is KEY in bringing to justice the person responsible for taking a life. Keep that in mind in the days to come, please. We need each other more than ever. Let’s do this. Let’s make sure our children MAKE IT HOME.
