"In an emotional Facebook post, Hart’s mothers Jennifer and Sarah told the story behind the now famous photo." “We hit the streets (Nov. 25) with the intention of spreading love and kindness, and to remind (ALL) people that they matter in this world. ... I noticed Devonte was struggling. Tears,” the post read. “He wouldn't speak. He was inconsolable. My son has a heart of a gold, compassion beyond anything I've ever experienced, yet struggles with living fearlessly when it comes to the police and people that don't understand the complexity of racism that is prevalent in our society. It was one of the most emotionally charged experiences I've had as a mother. He trembled holding a Free Hugs sign as he bravely stood alone in front of the police barricade. Tears rushing from his eyes and soaking his sweater, he gazed upon them not knowing how they would react. After a while, one of the officers approached him and extended his hand. Their interaction was uncomfortable at first. ... There were generic questions about his favorite subject and what he liked to do in the summer, but the one that mattered hit straight to the heart. He asked Devonte why he was crying. His response about his concerns regarding the level of police brutality towards young black kids was met with an unexpected and seemingly authentic (to Devonte), "Yes. *sigh* I know. I'm sorry. I'm sorry." The officer then asked if he could have one of his hugs.” Since the photo was first posted on Facebook, it has already garnered over 150,000 shares. Devonte Hart is already noted for being an active advocate for peace and has been profiled for his "Free Hugs" campaign.
What an incredible family. I don't even know what else to say. So instead I'll you with a few more words from Devonte’s mother.
“(We need) authentic human interactions - listening to each other - facing fears with an open heart. Tired of hearing about racial issues?? Turn off the television, phone, and computer. Stop feeding problems through a screen and become part of the real life solution.”
I agree 100%.
