Atlanta Burns! Peaceful Protest Loses Its Way, CNN Center Vandalized

But there were shining, bright moments beforehand that we can always cherish.

Atlanta was set ablaze in what would become the beginning of the end of the Civil War some 240-odd years ago, and so perhaps it is only fitting that what we hope could be the beginning of the end of the second Civil Rights Movement could occur here as well.

The scene in the capital of the south was calm for a while.  There were stirring and riveting moments that showed the world what a lovely place that Atlanta could be.

But then came further tension.  Soon, the CNN center would be vandalized.

From there, a cop car ceremoniously torched as some sort of offering to the Gods of human kindness.

Former Mayor Andrew Young joined a local news broadcast to shame those who turned the incident ugly, convinced that they were “showing off”.

In all, at least 9 Atlanta Police Department cruisers have been damaged by rioters.

There were bright and shining moments prior to this escalation, however, as a moment of silence from nearby Centennial Olympic Park inspired hope online.

If we remember anything about this day, let it be that silence, and that beautiful, diverse array of Atlantans.
