As I’m sure you are all aware of by now, the riots that broke out in Ferguson, Missouri on November 24th, 2014 as a result of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot Michael Brown, caused massive damage to the town.
Not only were cars burned, but businesses were broken into, looted, and burned to the ground. One of the women affected by this misplaced violence and vandalism is a woman by the name of Natalie Dubose, a single mother of two, who owns a cake shop in the area.
Natalie is a victim of senseless crimes of an imploding community which turned on the very people they were fighting to protect. The violence that broke out caused irreparable damage to many local businesses owned by proprietors who had nothing to do with the verdict that caused the outrage. Natalie found chairs thrown through her store’s windows and property smashed.
Natalie began selling her baked goods at flea markets and advanced to having a storefront in Ferguson. As an innocent resident of the town, there is no justification for the damage done to her store.
As a response, people have banded together and started a fundraiser to help Natalie rebuild. Let us use this as an opportunity to show how to make a positive difference and to work towards change. Let us use this to show that the good in people will triumph over the evil, and that light will always overtake darkness.
Let us do contribute whatever small amount we can in order to give a dream back to a woman who worked so hard to build it in the first place.
