The last 24 hours have been difficult for a lot of our Hawks, myself included. I hope tomorrow is better. Rest in peace, Elijah.
“I know this has happened before and will happen again.
I know this triggers thoughts of losing my childhood friend.
I know that I have to comfort our young women and men.
I know I want the guns and violence to end.
I know I just had a conversation with him.
I know I was hopeful at last week’s end.
I know I don’t know a lot about why or when.
I know it takes us all to heal and to mend.”
