In a tragic twist of fate, 13-year old Sandra Parks became a victim of gun violence after she penned a heartfelt letter about gun violence.
Sandra was unfortunately hit by a stray bullet when someone opened fire near her home. According to sources, the bullet entered her bedroom as she was watching televsion.
When sources asked her sister for a statement, she indicated:
My sister took it like a soldier: She just walked in the room and said, Mama, I’m shot. She was onlu hit one time, in her chest. The bullet wasn’t ever for her.”
Sandra was placed third in the Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest back in 2016 where she penned an empathic letter against violence, society and the importance of education.
Just this Wednesday, Isaac D. Barnes, 26, and Untrell Oden, 27, were arrested and charged with the first-degree reckless homicide and other counts.
May she rest in peace and let’s continue to advocate and actively speak out against gun reform. In other news:
