Friends,
Here are some more on-the-ground stories, photos, videos and reflections from my experience in Ferguson. Searching for collective progress and healing through first-hand immersion and seeing all sides. Your thoughts welcomed (on blog comment post please as I don't browse GPlus too much these days so may miss your comment.)

Thanks so much to all who encourage me to keep digging in and telling the story!  +Kirk Hinkleman  +Johann Gauthier  +Suzanne Daigle  +Tricia Chirumbole +Trae Carlson

Unpacking thoughts on my trip to #Ferguson  with fiance and friends several weeks ago. Stay tuned for more stories, pictures and gropings for an answer.

heading to Ferguson tomorrow... hoping not to add to any pain or tension, bringing water, sandwiches including donations from friends up here.  Doing a lot of thinking about the situation and what can be done to catalyze a new day for us all in which black people can feel safe, respected, heard, powerful and equal in this country.

I plan to document with photos, writing and some video the voices of people down there. Have found these articles really useful so far:

phew! one project done (almost)... one more gargantuan one to go. 

Just finished this cool infographic for an even COOLER group, "Great Work Cultures," who's working across time and space to shift our workspaces from places of Command & Control to Respect and Empowerment...!!!  neat huh?

huge thanks to Joseph Cooper-Silvis  for your creative partnership on this design and to +Tricia Chirumbole  for inviting me in!
