Harriette Cole: I don’t want to just be sad for a minute about his murder


DEAR HARRIETTE: Tragically, one of my nephew’s best friends was recently murdered while he was on the job. Someone just came up to him and shot him for no reason. And he got away.

This young man had so much to look forward to. He was one of the good ones. He had his head on his shoulders right, and he was building a business. Now he’s gone, and the whole community is devastated. He has become a statistic, another young Black man who was senselessly murdered.

What can we do to help people remember him? It’s too horrible to just be sad for a minute and that’s it. His family and closest friends are in shock. I’m wondering if I can do anything to help.

Keeping His Memory Alive

DEAR KEEPING HIS MEMORY ALIVE: I am so sorry to learn about this tragedy. Young lives cut short are too frequent, especially young Black men.
