I want to write about running and fitness but tonight I just can’t. There’s an instinct that has taken over and all I’m concerned about is the safety of my family and the community that I love.
I don’t live in Ferguson but I’m close enough to feel unsettled. I’m close enough to feel sadness for the family and sadness for the community in which they live. I’m close enough to feel extreme frustration for the families of North County that just want to live their lives. Life can be difficult enough without this.
Our main priority as parents is to create a safe and happy environment for our kids. It’s times like this that remind me how much we take for granted.
So tonight hug your children, say a prayer and hope that while justice is served, that peace comes soon.
