#Ferguson is America's selfie.
— Chris Williams (@iamchriswms) August 20, 2014
I saw this tweet last night as the world reacted to the events in Ferguson.
I saw this tweet reflected in today’s newspaper front pages. From the Boston Herald to the New York Post to the Calgary Sun and every other U.S. and Canadian paper in between, let alone a few foreign papers who are located west of Missouri — we are seeing our reflection.
Do you remember the days and weeks after 9/11 when people bought flags and patriotism ran amok? That level of the nation coming together, for good or bad, hasn’t happened since. But we began to show our face last night — through good and bad.
My question is when our selfie changes again and what inspires us to come together as one.
