James Baldwin for Esquire magazine. Words as true 50 years later as they were then. #Ferguson
ferguson -
mandylharp : Yes. Yes. Yes.
photoratt : 👏
elicia_zahm : Yes and love
missangelamaria : Preach.
kristenhowerton : @aplum93 deleting your comment for using a racially charged word
aplum93 : I did not use any racially charged words. I have a lot of respect for you but am disappointed in you in this instance. More accurate to say the entire circumstance is charged, but this is your platform and I have no doubt you are speaking from your heart.

Truth. @lisacongdon
baileymbullock : I came to your Instagram specifically to see if you had posted in response to the Ferguson verdict. Thank you for speaking out on these issues, no matter how boldly or subtly that takes place.
angnresch : Yes.
hope_grace_joy : I am so torn up over all of this. Heart is breaking here in PA.
kbberger : Heart breaking here in St. Louis. This is not my city. This is not who we are. And yet, anger is taking over. 😪 #stltogether #stlstrong
keshiabender : 💓💗💓💗
elicia_zahm : Cried pretty much all day yesterday. For my black child, for the City of St Louis where I grew up that is burning and because the most hate filled comments yesterday were from Christians. Jesus help us love better!!!!

My boys are growing so fast. They are almost as tall as me. It's a milestone most mothers will experience but for mamas of black boys, it's also tinged with fear. Today, a boy not much older than my own was shot by police while playing with a toy gun in a park. My heart is heavy for #tamirrice's family tonight. Saying a prayer of solidarity tonight for mamas everywhere for whom this news brings an all-too-familiar wave of fear.

jamie4106 : To go a bit of a different direction with this. We had this conversation with my son who has aspergers just a few days ago. About how not to play with guns and how to do as a police officer says immediately and without question. I can foresee how my boy would handle a situation like this and it scares me. Even in our conversation he said, "I would just tell them it's a toy" to which I had to explain. First you would put it down and do what the officer tells you. Later you would use words.
kellycasciotta : I cannot even imagine...
kristenhowerton : @bookiejustin my response was to delete. :/
sheerjeenius : I think about this constantly. Makes me so sad for what our world is for my young children. Love what @despotic_quixotic said- I hope the world steps it's game up too. ♡
pattij3 : @kristenhowerton @bookiejustin #EVERYCHILDMATTERS
sarah_reeve : @kristenhowerton your posts alone have increased my awareness on this terrible possibility and I will pray for you and others that are affected by this tragedy
catfish619 : This morning, I read some comments on this post and felt saddened that some don't understand what it means to have White privilege. This evening, my heart is even heavier. When will our society realize that #blacklivesmatter ?
juliaburns2007 : Amen, amen, amen. Praying for enlightenment, empathy, understanding, and peace for all of us. Mothers should never have to fear for their sons just because of the color of their skin; the sooner we accept that this is happening and it is wrong, the sooner we can start to change it.

Roasted brussel sprouts with mint, feta, and pomegranate seeds make me wanna slap my mama. (Seriously mama. Why? Why did you serve these to me boiled as a child?) (Also this is the cutest bar ever.)
axesandfeathers : The first time I had them with mushrooms, white wine, and cream I felt exactly the same way. To think I used to have to bury them in mashed potatoes and gag! Not fair!!
staciegregory : Add a little maple syrup before you roast next time. It's like dessert!
brynne28 : Those Brussel spouts are amazeeeeee balls
lunabirdie : Yes please!!
jlchalle : Bacon+brussel sprouts roasted in the oven, when they're almost done splash a little balsamic over them. A match made in heaven
bailey_abigail : @sarahelizabeth0627 here you recipe to try.
bfutrell : Um yum!!! @ck_sims this sounds like it'd be right up your gourmet Jose alley!!

Lunch date at @cafegratitude, my favorite restaurant in LA. Totally vegan menu with names like "I Am Thriving" and "I Am Open Hearted" and when you place your order the server gives your table a question to discuss. Today's: WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO? So tell us ... what are you looking forward to? (India is looking forward to meeting Kerry Butler someday, who played Penny Pingleton and Audrey on Broadway. Anyone know her? I'm looking forward to our Peruvian rainforest trip next year.)
kristenhowerton : @gclefjen too funny! We are sitting right by the window on the street.
mytwomums : I'm looking forward to an adventurous 2015. It's all in the planning ;)
catfish619 : Looking forward to spending the holiday with friends
elicia_zahm : Looking forward to getting back to Haiti!!!!
kellybergin : I just ordered a nativity set for my niece (aka #dopeniece) and I'm looking forward to watching her play and learn the story of Christmas.
feb2011 : I am looking forward to getting a call from our fostadopt agency saying they have a baby or child(ren) for us! ❤️
blakegoodfellow : Looking forward to lots of #shirtlessmark @markhowerton on that rainforest trip
kristenhowerton : @blakegoodfellow I think @markhowerton is looking forward to another shirtless event on that trip

What Saturday mornings are for. @markhowerton
shesgonnalive : Awww, you took this picture right after they woke you guys up, crawled into bed speaking loudly, accidentally knee someone in the process and wiggle their cold toes on your feet while stealing blankets. Wait, that was my morning.
bakedmomma : The best! When my older boys come home all 5 of the kids lay around us in bed Sat mornings and we talk and laugh about everything. I miss all of them being together like they were when they were younger.
ae_ashton : Lmfao @shesgonnalive love this pic
lifewithroozle : Riley saw this and said "Do they not have shirts on?" I had to explain #shirtlessmark, obvs.
ps11829 : @bakedmomma I am a momma of 5 little ones and I pray they will indulge their mama just like that when they are older! Blessings!
kristenhowerton : @shesgonnalive ha! That's exactly how it went
kristenhowerton : @shesgonnalive and also farting
