27. I agree, your OP IS an 'outstanding post'. I hope you continue to write here on this issue

because we know that keeping the focus on issues as serious as this, isn't easy and needs great writers like yourself to keep people engaged in what could be a pivotal moment not just for Ferguson, but for the country as a whole.


Thanks for the quote from Ruskin:

"Moral fervor can't maintain your movement, nor can the act of participation itself. There must be a genuine commitment to the advancement of the people. To have such a commitment is also to have a militant sense of responsibility, a recognition that actions have consequences which have a very real effect on the individual lives of those one seeks to advance."

"Far too many movements lack both a (legislative) perspective and a sense of responsibility, and they fail because of it," Ruskin wrote.
