Violinist Gather To Honor The Death Of Elijah McClain

These are always hard to write. 23 year old Elijah McClain was wrongfully killed in Aurora, CO by police after walking home from the store to get his brother something to drink. He was a good kid. Played violin for stray cats at his local animal shelter. The words he uttered before taking his final breath haunt me. That's how sad this is. Read them:

Now people around the country are holding vigils and playing violin together in his memory. The group that gathered in Washington Square Park, NYC played beautifully to honor Elijah. Words can't describe how deeply painful it is to hear his story. The music almost helps.
