As the Ferguson police chief resigns due to growing tensions, we at the After hours flowers believe that flowers can promote peaceful protests. Say it all with flowers. Instead of escalating tensions and deepen both sides of the conflict, you can taunt the heavily armored riot police by such an elegant gesture.
Similar to Mahatma Gandhi and the Vietnam war protests in the 60's, the masses gathered to prevent another conflict abroad by handing trigger happy riot police flowers to break the tension. Shoving flowers down police barrels is a clever yet peaceful way of protesting for a peaceful cause.
"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony"
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Protesters gathered outside the Ferguson Police Department, their cheers at the resignation of the city's embattled police chief quickly giving way to angry chants of "Racist cops have got to go" and gunfire.
Two officers were shot, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the early Thursday morning, attributing the information to interim Chief Lt. Col. Al Eickhoff. The extent of their injuries wasn't known, Eickhoff told the paper.
The Ferguson riots have been going on for months now. This violent cycle must end. Speak your mind through nature. Every flower has a meaning. Convey your message peacefully!
