Last Friday, on the 2nd on September, two young girls were shot walking home from McNeil Middle School. This senseless act of violence has gripped at many hearts here in the local area, including mine. I can't help but think what if it had been a different school or if it had been my child and every time it brings tears to my eyes to know that a family is having to feel the pain of loss at the hands of someone else. That a family is having to cope with someone violently attacking their daughter.
I know there is not much that anyone can do or say to help these families mourn/heal in this time but I wanted to take the time to reach out and say we all are thinking of you, praying for you, and mourning with you. May Lauren rest in peace and may Makayla heal emotionally and physically.
If you would like to help these families please check out the graphic below!
