'Black lives matter' protests
Praying for peace in Ferguson
Rafiq’s parents have owned a small business in Ferguson for the past 22 years. The business is across the street from the police and fire stations where some of the protests have been happening, he said.
“I am afraid my parents business will be looted or damaged at some point. This is a big concern because it’s the only income they have coming in. It saddens and frustrates [me] watching people destroy a community.”
