Iyanla Vanzant in Ferguson “ASK” [Commentary]

lat-la-na-ferg-thursx-wre0019747846-20140821Only 75 demonstrators marched this past Thursday in Ferguson, the national guard was call back. Those 75 would have been out on that street regardless of the cameras. Those 75 loved “Mike Mike” as the sign simply says. However, I don’t  judge you for going home. We all knew one day most would have to go home and pick up the struggles of their own lives. Now that the “movement” has begun, (yeah I called it a movement) in the words of  Iyanla Vanzant “lets call a thing a thing.” Now that we have all calmed down a little, lets reflect.

What did we learn?

Did you know all major cities had that same weapons of civil destruction?

Did you know they could arrest the media in MacDonald’s because they said so?

Did you know they could be the worse “cover-upers” in the world and the world would still discuss it like it’s really covered up?

Did you know they no longer shoot to stun, they shoot to kill?

Did you know the value they have placed on your life?

Some of you enlightened individuals might have already knew the answers to these questions. But for those of us who didn’t know, now that we do what are we going to do with that information? This situation made us aware. Now what are you going to do with that awareness? Will you ignore it, dismiss it, disconnect from it, or will you find a way to do something with it?

1.Plan your ASK

2. Know who you are going to ASK

3. Be prepared to participate in the ASK
