Eric Garner


There was a march for Eric Garner last Saturday on Staten Island.

I marched for the lives lost due to poor training and lack of education in our police department. Fear often dictates our lives and we are left with irreversible damage.

My heart goes out to Garner's family, the families of Michael Brown, Renisha McBride and the staggering many who have died without a cause. Their loss brought New Yorkers from all walks of life together with a unanimous message: The civil rights movement is not over.
