    Tragic death. May God give courage to the suffering parents and little one he left behind. Losing your only son is a difficult concept to grasp. May growing up without your father be source of strength rather than a debilitating force for the young child.
    This is an unfortunate and constant reminder of the neighborhoods we live in that promote and feed into a culture of violence where vengeance and social status are acquired by “taking out others”.
    Although the perpetrator/s haven’t been brought to justice, may the community, law enforcement, and media come together to demand this crime not be categorized with the “unsolved”. MEDIA please follow up on this crime!!!
