Tonight in Ferguson, Mo. Even CNN is calling out police brutality.
We are watching history unfold. Do not stand down. Spread the word.
No justice, no peace.

Wanderlust (n): a strong, innate desire to travel.
If you suffer from wanderlust, look out for Phenomenal by Leigh Ann Henion next year!
The author reclaimed her sense of wonder by witnessing the monarch butterfly migration in Mexico, lightning storms in Venezuela (the region receives 1.2 million lightning strikes a year), and the Bioluminescent Bay among other phenomena. Along the way she met modern-day shamans, reindeer herders, and people from all walks of life.
Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
So this is a great win-win.
I’ve been with kids in a similar program, and they get so into it. They want to know the cats’ names, pick books that the cats will enjoy (“I can’t read her that book! It’s about dogs!”), make sure they can see the pictures, and get so excited when the kitties show their appreciation with headbutts and lap sitting.
