Homicide Vigil

Two more young men have died as a result of gun violence. This Saturday, June 22, we will gather at two different sites to remember both of them whose deaths occurred on June 9th.

Jontae L. Tinsley, 18, was a passenger in a car that was returning to pick up a friend at a 16th birthday party. From the obituary of Jontae we know that he attended Ohio Dominican University on a football scholarship. He was described as a “loving and devoted son, brother, nephew, grandson and friend. . .with a contagious smile, big heart and passion for football.” Edward Snowden, 23, was killed in front of his residence in the Creekside Apartments, formerly known as Northland Village Apartments. We were unable to find specific information on Kevin but feel sure that he was also special to his family and friends. Please hold in your prayers all those whose hearts are grieving for these two young men.

Hope is not something we do alone but we can only do it in community. So the community agrees on a vision of what they hope for and then, together, they act to make the vision real.”

When we stand together at a homicide site and/or unite ourselves through prayer with those who do stand at the site, we are people of hope, a community of hope.
