Disturbing. Heart-wrenching. Unsettling. These are just a few words that inadequately describe the feelings and emotions surrounding this growing trend in America.  As you prayerfully read the attached article on the link below, I urge you to not just have a  “SMH…shaking my head” response to this awful phenomenon, but to find a way to be a part of the solution whether through prayer, sharing this post with friends and family and most importantly for our young audience…enter into dialogue with your parents/guardians or school counselors about your feelings and questions about this issue.  Be aware of your surroundings and be vigilant to keep yourself safe when alone on roads and malls.Finally, be strong and confident to report any suspicious activities that you believe may be a direct result of this crime or any other.
