Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.
He’s more than just a #JusticeforJunior hashtag.
He was a son.
He was a brother.
He was a student.
He was a friend.
He was an innocent 15 year-old kid.
He was filled with promise and hope
He was a beautiful child of God.
He was dragged out of a crowded corner store.
He was sliced to death on the street w/ machetes.
He was brutally murdered while onlookers recorded it — no one helped him.
He ran to the hospital alone.
He died alone.
We are a society depraved of compassion, love, and a sense of right from wrong.
I’m disgusted and outraged and what happened to this beautiful young man.
My heart weeps for his mother and his entire family
We failed Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz.
A society that doesn’t protect its children is failing.
To write that as a teacher is crippling.
Sorry, BabyBoy....so sorry for how it all went down.
You didn’t deserve that. You did nothing wrong.
Your life nor your pain will be in vain.
