We saw numerous images of cars and buildings burning as looters and arsonists grabbed the headlines after what had been 108 days of largely peaceful protests.

But what you probably haven’t seen on CNN or in this morning’s edition of USA Today is that around the country, thousands stood in solidarity with Ferguson.
