please do not let ferguson die out like everything else big does. do not let this die out. do not let this continue on for three days and then everyone forget about it. do not let this happen.
queue this post up 3 days from now, a week from now, a month from now, a month from then. make sure even if you forget your blog will remember.
I remember when I was about 16 or a little younger, I was in the car with my parents and we were driving through Bend Oregon. At the time, I was struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts, and tendencies. My dad was listening to NPR and they were interviewing Robin Williams, he talked about going to tharapy, and how he struggled with depression, and played mind games with his therapist. I remember realizing that his humor was a way he coped with his depression. I also felt less alone.
I’m so sorry that you decided that it was time.
You did what you could, and held on long enough to change our world for the better.
