I hope you all had a great weekend!
The most amazing thing happened in St.Louis, Missouri on Saturday evening. A Michael Brown flash mob performed at the end of a symphony’s intermission! Get this, the people singing were not black!! The symphony was getting ready to continue with their show when 2 people stood up singing an old protest song, modified for Michael Brown’s case. Then after a few seconds, a few more people stood up, then more people stood up with signs and everything. They ended their song and left the venue while chanting “black lives matter.” That is so impressive. I think that the fact that it was a group of non-blacks spoke volume. The way that they went about it was very creative. People applauded as they sang and as they left. For the full story the CNN link below.

The CDC continues to say that they are confident that the Ebola virus will not be an outbreak in the U.S. They are trying to take precautionary measures at airports, but we’ll see with time how effective their actions are. Keep your fingers crossed!
