FERGUSON, Mo. - Secret Santa anonymously surprised strangers with brand new, crisp $100 bills this week.
This year, he traveled somewhere he's never been: Ferguson, Mo. He took the FBI, Missouri Highway Patrol and Ferguson police with him to the same places where police and protesters clashed one year ago.
The demonstrations and unrest occurred for more than 100 days after a white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed black 18-year-old Michael Brown.
I am fortunate to be asked to go on Secret Santa's “sleigh rides” as he calls them because the power of kindness in these cases always proves to be a life-changing experience for all involved.
