Sixteen St. Louis-area residents have been tasked with bringing healing to Ferguson, and at the moment, it looks like they've got their work cut out for them.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon announced the members of the Ferguson Commission, a group he said would advise local governments on making the community a fairer place to live when he announced its formation last month.
"This is a defining moment that will determine whether this place will be known as a region marred by racial division and unrest or a region that pulled together to rise above and heal."
