Instead of preparing for the end of the end of the school year and celebrating student achievement, we're mourning Kendrick Castillo, a real hero, and hoping for recovery for all those affected by the shooting on May 7, 2019.
This weekend Muhlaysia Booker was found murdered. She had suffered a mob attack April 12th. That attack was recorded while bystanders watched until a group of women dragged her to safety. There has been an arrest in the beating as a hate crime and charges are being considered for those who watched and did nothing. Her death is being investigated as homicide.
Until we can treat people... well, like PEOPLE, we will have those who are pushed beyond their limits and people who are too quick to judge when they have no business judging anyone else.
