*Time magazine journalists covering the chaos in Ferguson took a camera on Thursday and simply followed one local teen, 14-year-old Shane Flowers, as he turned out to protest peacefully last Thursday.

The footage was edited into a 5 min. 30 second short titled “‘Am I Next?’: Ferguson’s Protests Through the Eyes of a Teenager.”

Looting, chanting, tear gas, rubber bullets – these are the images from Ferguson, Mo. entering American homes. But some protesters are armed with little more than chalk and paper signs, hoping simply to create a simple memorial for Michael Brown, the teenager killed by a police officer in the St Louis suburb on Aug. 9. TIME followed Shane Flowers as he weaved through the largely peaceful protests on Thursday evening, attempting to let his voice be heard with darkness slowly falling on Florissant Avenue.
