Protect our children. Show them a better way. Stand in solidarity. Be positive. #ferguson
We attempted to help clean up but folks were out here way before us and got most of it done. #positivitybreedspositivity #deltasigmatheta #support #ferguson
We sang. We prayed. We ate. (Kind people kept donating food to those peacefully protesting!) #scripture #word #ferguson #prayforstl
This is one of the men reporting the real out here. I was happy to thank @tef_poe face to face seeing as I’ve sent countless people to him to stay up to date on the situation in my city. #stl #ferguson

Happening now. #JesseJackson
So many ways to support #ferguson this weekend! FTMBC youth rally tonight at 7, food & school supply drive at First Baptist Church of Ferguson tomorrow 9-11, memorial fund set up through Straubs (#mikebrown’s mom worked at the Clayton location), and Greeks going to the ESTL picnic can drop off canned goods or drop them off at the Kappa or Omega house (contact a member for more information on times). Let’s all show support in some manner! Spread the word!
My high school was in the Ferguson-Florissant district and for the most I part grew up in the county that lies next to #Ferguson. Several family members live within a mile or two of the scenes you’re seeing everyday. Every morning I awake praying my city has something to celebrate but I tend to wake up to the same news I went to sleep to; only worse.
To stay updated on real facts, follow Tef Poe, Brittany Noble, and Antonio French (a city alderman who was jailed last night) on fb, twitter, and Instagram. There are plenty of others who are being legit sources of information but we must learn who to believe in times like this. Just because the news reporter says it or because a journalist writes it, doesn’t make it real. I’m only focused on what those who are in the trenches are saying. #peaceinstlouis #prayforstlouis (Outside photos via Tef Poe’s Instagram page)
But God!! Look at all the youth in church tonight. I love my church community. Pastor said he plans to go into the street and talk to the youth. He wants to have a sit down with them at church and wants it to be an ongoing thing. He wants to hear their concerns. Mike Jones stays helping the community so I know his word is bond. #friendlytemple #justiceformikebrown #peaceforstl #saveouryouth #doyourpart
