    If my child was killed there's no way I'd be able to speak and not bawl my eyes out. Stronger woman than I am.

    Wow. This woman is AMAZING! She raised her child right. What a loss for mankind. I love that she is using this opportunity as a teachable moment. Instead of being lost in grief, hate, and anger, she channels her energy as a call to action for others to not stand idly by while they witness injustices around them. Do something! Thank you for this message. ❤️❤️

    I loved her message, but it's irritating me that they didn't lower the mic for her.
