The Brown Family Buried Their Son Michael Today

The Brown family buried their son Michael today.

Eulogies were given, songs were sung, tears were shed.

Thousands sat in attendance, many of whom never knew Michael in life. News cameras and reporters from around the world documented the service for posterity. And in the middle of it all…

The Brown family buried their son Michael today.

Michael Brown was not a cause, not a movement, not a headline. He was a soul and now that soul soul has gone to memory.

The Brown family buried their son Michael today.

There will be no cameras there when his mother calls his name for breakfast and in the silence she remembers. There will be no protest marches when his father dials Michael’s cell and on the fourth digit he remembers and puts down the phone. There will be no panel of experts available when two souls sit together and stare at a vacant chair …

And they weep.

You see…

The Brown family buried their son Michael today.
