How do People react to this incident?
What is going on with our youth??!!!! This does not sit well with me at all! My heart goes out to her family and other families that are losing their kids to gun violence. Our youth don’t give a cow for human life!! Y’all have not even reached the peak of your lives to just take another life. We have to get these kids in the church, we need something for these kids to do to occupy their time when they are out of school.
Parents we need to get together to find a solution. We have to save our kids!!! This is too much for me. for her family. Lord, please place your armor of protection around our kids! Lord keep them from harm is seen and unseen father God. Lord direct and lead their path in Jesus’ name! Amen!

What a beautiful girl. Praying for her family, especially her mother. Why in the world?
This is so sad…When are the city officials going to “DO SOMETHING” or request ASSISTANCE from outside agencies? Enough is Enough
This is my opinion… ok we all see that the enemy and his HELL hounds are robbing these children of their lives… the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy.. he doesn’t care who the child is on his list! So parents we got to go back to the village. If you don’t know where your child is ask your neighbor. It’s time or past time on getting these young teenagers off the streets and at home with their families or at grandma’s house. It’s time for a change to come!! I know what it feels like to lose a young adult at 37 from an illness. My God I just don’t understand these babies being killed.
This is too much to handle. Where does it stop? I’m glad I asked myself.. when parents become accountable for their teenagers.. don’t misunderstand me, I know they will get out of hand. But you’re still responsible for them. If they don’t listen and obey you. put them under house arrest.. whatever you have to do, death is forever unless they were saved by Christ. I’m dealing with pain.. and it’s terrible pain for my son. I know I’ll see him again. It hurts to keep hearing about these teenagers dying is my whole point.
