In one tweet he stated: “A life ended at age 6 and we continue with our day. A teen was shot on a Sunday afternoon and many will barely stop to read the story. We must, as a community, take a collective and honest look at ourselves and our systems. We cannot sink into complacency when our children are at stake.”
