'His death is not in vain': Thousands mourn Michael Brown

E-mail Print PDF

Michael BrownHundreds of people gathered Monday to pay their final respects to Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer earlier this month. The ceremony was accompanied by calm on the streets of Ferguson — contrasting with the turmoil in the aftermath his death — but provided the opportunity for civil rights advocates to again push for justice regarding the shooting and an end to police brutality.

Pastors and civil rights leaders joined Brown's parents at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis to commemorate the young man's life. Earlier his father, Michael Brown Sr., called for a day of peace in honor of his son.

The city of Ferguson appeared to the heed those words, with no signs of unrest and children returning to school, after the start of classes was delayed from last week out of concern for student safety.

At the red-brick church at which mourners were gathered, Brown’s coffin was surrounded by photos of him as a child, graduating from school and smiling in his St. Louis Cardinals cap.
