Right behind a local pastor’s home in Charlotte, the riots ensued on Tuesday night. Helicopters raced over his yard barely touching the roof of his house. He has little children who laid in their beds and slept through the unexplainable noises. He had done nothing wrong, yet he was in the line of fire. He was faced with an onslaught of thoughts while trying to make sure his family was protected. The neighborhood exits were blocked, and if the rioters came any closer, they had a to make a decision on whether or not they would have to leave on foot or stay at home. What would he do? How would he react? Innocent people are being affected by immature acts of violence. Let’s not cry out for peace while expressing rage.
