This month our theme is comfort and I wanted to write about my gratitude journal. But a lot has happened since I decided to do that. I’ve been confused, angry, terrified, and saddened by the death of Michael Brown and the events that have followed it. I have watched my people be terrorized in the streets of Ferguson by the people sworn to protect them. Rubber bullets have been shot at protesters. Tear gas thrown at people standing in their own backyards. There were tanks and assault rifles.
