Michael Brown will be laid to rest Monday, and his father says he just wants one thing: peace.
“Please, please take a day of silence so I can, so we can, lay our son to rest. Please. It’s all I ask,” Michael Brown Sr. said at a rally in St. Louis on Sunday.
Brown,18, was fatally shot on August 9 by officer Darren Wilson while walking down the streets of Ferguson, Missouri.
His death sparked days of violent protests in the St. Louis suburb. In the past several days, things have calmed down, and the town is slowly coming back to life.
Brown will be eulogized at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis.
The White House is sending three officials to his funeral, including one who attended high school with his mother.
