Thank you to Ms. Scanlon and Unity Temple for always making the loss of life real; beyond the headline and numerical count. Real people are losing their lives, thank you for reminding us and offering our community an opportunity to acknowledge them.

I will be keeping the families of these victims in my thoughts. I'll also be praying that the killers will be brought to justice, and that they'll receive the just punishment they deserve.
