The military is being called to squash protests. My concern is that we have two sides that are going to clash and I'm afraid of the ramifications. Our military is designed to protect us from outside and are not well equipped to protect against internal threats. I hope with all my heart that it works out, people will go home for their own safety, and we will have honest discussion on race and economic growth in this country. It seems we are tackling this problem from a mindset of Baby Boomers and not that which comes from Millennials. St. Johns is iconic and should not have been damaged. This was an act of a destructive anarchist...but doesn't represent the deeper meaning of why the protests occurred. We will be giving this country to the young someday...now is the time to engage and reconcile to build a better future. Discussion on reform and economic engagement must happen.
I think we can find a win-win situation if we work on it and open our hearts and minds to find solutions. The video of people working together from both sides and protecting each other is very helpful. That is how it should be.....but isn't fully part of the process of reconciliation yet.
