Today my Friday Wisdom is the words of Tariq Jahan, the father of one of the young men killed in the riots. See my post here.
“Today we stand here to plead with all the youth to remain calm (and) for our communities to stand united. This is not a race issue.”
“Blacks, Asians, whites – we all live in the same community. Why do we have to kill each other?
“I lost my son. Step forward if you want to lose your sons. Otherwise, calm down and go home.”
