  1. Living 3 miles from Ferguson and my family victims of police brutality that contributed to my daughters PTSD, I feel the horror of the hatred. My house value has declined again (previous because of the housing crash then our school becoming unaccredited), so that it is valued at about $10000. This contributes to more poverty and hopelessness here. I blocked 4 friends on FB this week because I don’t want to see people hate poor that they don’t know. They believe the poor should be punished, as if they are the enemy. I explain, it’s the 1%., Citizens United and big Corporations that are hurting this country. These people are not willing to see reality. I fear the Ferguson riots are just a small glimpse into this countries future. The hate is too prominent. Hitler got into power putting blame and hate on innocent. The GOP is too. I cry a lot about this

  2. Thank you for your poem. It spoke to how I am feeling about the fears I have as a black mother of a black son and as a wife of a black man. Thank you!
