What's next for Michael Brown's family?

(CNN) – It is easy to get consumed by the image of protesters, or caught up in debate over police profiling and excessive force in the Michael Brown case.

But when you peel away all those layers, you are reminded that a family is still in mourning over the loss of a loved one.

Brown's mother said she could not imagine celebrating Thanksgiving without her son. Yesterday, the family released a picture of themselves sitting at their dining table, with an empty chair in the 18-year-old's honor.

What's clear is that the Brown family believes it was failed by the justice system when a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for killing the unarmed teenager.

But they insist this is not where their story ends.

Attorney Anthony Gray lays out what's next for the Brown family in the video above.
