Please pause and put aside your political and cultural biases. Observe and relate to a mother’s agony. Watch it. Share it. Pray for peace, healing and justice — for Michael Brown’s loved ones, Ferguson, Ofc Darren Wilson and our divided nation.
Unfortunately Ferguson MO erupted again, last night, in the aftermath of the grand jury decision not to indict Ofc. David Wilson for the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Long after the protests and headlines wane; the grief that Michael Brown’s loved ones feel will persist.
Steve Harvey asked me to join him in an on air session with Michael’s mother Leslie McPhadden. We’ve included the entire clip, so that you can see and feel Leslie’s grief and the genuine empathy and passion from Steve and me.
I spent much more time, one-on-one, with Leslie off camera. My prayers of comfort and grace remain with her; I hope yours will too.
