I am a very logical thinker. Too logical, my husband sometimes tells me. But even in all my logic and left-brained thinking, I can get emotional. I can get angry. I can get sad. I can get discouraged. Especially with topics close to my heart, my passion, my life’s work.
As we unravel the ugliness of the past weeks, from Ferguson to Eric Garner, it’s easy to get emotional. I sure have. And it’s difficult to separate fact from fiction. But the facts are what we must focus on for any real change to take place. The facts are what we must have the courage to discuss with each other. Because it is up to EACH OF US as to what Ferguson’s legacy will be.
