I haven't written about #MikeBrown today because i don't know what to say. I wish I were home in StL so I could go to the vigil. I wish his murderer was charged & convicted. I wish Mike was alive. I wish that in his death, the whole country would unite around #BlackLivesMatter.

It's with a heavy heart that we closed the doors to @WellspringSTL. I wanted to share some of my experiences at this beautiful church. (thread incoming)
