KANSAS CITY CELEBRATES FAITH COMMUNITY FEEL GOOD MARCH AGAINST DEADLY POLICE SHOOTINGS AMID VIOLENT AND BLOODY URBAN CORE SUMMER 2016!!!
Credit where it's due . . . A march in urban core Kansas City seemed to strike the perfect tone amid a week of tragic violence throughout the nation.
A snippet of their mission statement and a brief off-topic lament that the totally hilarious Black Jesus never found an audience . . . Here's what organizers had to say . . .
"We must speak out against the killings of Black men within our society, as well as grieve with police officers and families across the nation. We must come together if we are to heal from this brokenness."
The march was an overwhelming success.

Amazing turnout and heartfelt activism defined this gathering.
Still, more cynical denizens who have been watching local murder stats might praise this kind of advocacy but realize that people with good intentions uniting in faith really aren't the problem when it comes to increasing local and national violence.
While it's fair to express cynicism that Kansas City denizens will somehow see the light and stop killing each other and the deep political and cultural divisions in the U.S. can be healed . . . The real "news" regarding this march might be that so many locals are still willing to take the the streets in hope of a miracle.
