I’m Not For Everybody

Knowing I’m “not for everybody” gives me a perverse satisfaction. This contradicts the teen-aged version of myself, a person who wanted to be liked by everybody.

Click to see other entries in The Ferguson Chronicles.  -- Originally sent August 17th, 2014.  God is truly moving and working. He knows my thoughts and my heart. Dealing with trolls and misleading media outlets, walking back to our hotel I saw Attorney Crump & held my chest in awe. Looking to the left, there was this large powerful man, having a moment to himself in the corner. It was Michael Brown Jr's father. I asked if he was the father and also asked if I could give him a hug. Read more [...]
