Here are a few more good news stories from the protests:

1.  A 16-year-old kid named Stefan Perez helped lead a peaceful protest in Detroit, then dropped to his knees with a megaphone and pleaded with people to comply with an 8:00 P.M. curfew.  The mayor of Detroit called later to thank him.

2.  An African-American guy in Nashville said he was scared to go on his daily 6:00 P.M. walks alone, because he lives in a mostly white neighborhood.  And when he stepped outside, 75 friends and neighbors were there waiting to walk with him.
