Heavy Heart

The article almost makes it sound like this kid was in a gang; but we don't believe he was.

He was a good kid.

For the last 12 years he's helped in our classrooms.

His mom still works with me at the school.

He was just at the wrong place, at the wrong time. (just a side note-- our principal was shot at, at the same location last year, but the bullet didn't kill her. She went 'around' the corner from the school to get gas... that's how close she was to school.)

And now he's dead, and I feel like I can't pick my heart up off the floor!
