    I found out the news when I was holding a meeting for parents of perspective wrestlers that a young man, Tamir Shereef 16, was shot to death around 1:30am November 14. I knew him because he came up and wrestled around a few times before I started the middle school kids practicing. His older brother wrestled with me when i was in high school. It is a small community and the high school has less than 500 people and many left school when the news came through. He traveled a rough road after being suspended from school, and it all ended in cold blood. I don't know what to do but pray for his family and the community. Tommorow I will meet with the middle school team who knew him and probably have to help them thorugh it and I will need help myself. Wasn't great friends with him, but knew him and it is a tragedy that a kid of 16 is shot like that. Here is a link to the news article. Pray for all involved and may the one who did this be caught. This is less than a mile from where I fish at night and where I take the team during the day to run. Scary thought.

    More prayers being said from Mo. If you fish that area and take the students to that area to run be sure you keep your eyes open. Just be careful and be there for the kids and they'll be there for you as well.

    Praying for the community, that young man's family, and for you, Brad, to be a voice of comfort wisdom to the kids who are in your care.

    The kids are safe at the times that I take them, all you see are retired men walking their bulldogs and young mothers with strollers traveling the nice trail system, I never take them there at night, and if they come and see me there I stay untill their parents get them. I am always on edge at night, watching and listening. This is near a block of restaurants and now people are worried and rightfully should be. Thanks for your prayers, they will be needed in the coming days.
