TAKE A STAND: Boys Being Men

It's not unusual to see a social media post go viral.  It's even better when it's for the right reason. 

The picture of two local high school students meeting with Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon has gotten a lot of attention.

Phaizon Myers and Jordan Brown, both juniors at Fort Dorchester High School, requested the meeting, and they came prepared. For almost two hours they discussed issues with Sheriff Cannon and Major Eric Watson. 

The boys say the Dallas shootings prompted them to step up and address the public's perception of law enforcement and police perception of the African-American community.

The sheriff was so impressed with the young men, he asked them to help develop a program for other young people with similar ideas. That's refreshing.  

Phaizon and Jordan are setting examples we can all follow.
