(Editor’s note: We began this summer with a commemoration of Freedom Summer, 50 years after blood was shed on Southern soil to insure our inalienable right to vote as citizens of these United States. We end this summer with renewed cries for freedom; the freedom to walk our neighborhood streets without dying, the freedom to pick up a toy without getting shot and the freedom to wait for our children after school, as Chris Lollie was attempting to do, without getting tased by police.)
