Thanks 27yo chi heights res. To God be the Glory! No, I'm not a licensed preacher but God has placed us all here to be ministers, which means to minister unto the people on this earth. I do have 2 children of my own and Kenny (the deceased) was like my own son. You know how well people speak well of a person once they are deceased and they do it just for that reason? Well, I'm not. Kenny was a very loving, mannerable and respectable young man. It's still hard to believe he's not around. It's difficult for our family to have any functions because we know he's not going to be there showing the love we were all use to. The hugs and kisses that he greeted everyone with. Another thing, I've never upheld Maverick or Greg in this situation but I will uphold Kenny until the end! One thing I do know is that God is a healer and His word never returns to Him void. He did say weeping may endureth for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. I'm constantly speaking into my sister's life every single day and telling her that her a.m. starts right now! I told her that we can't change what the enemy did and what God has allowed, but we CAN move on. There's a song by Marvin Sapp that says "Never Could've Made it Without YOU", meaning God. At first I couldn't sleep nor eat and I asked God to give me and my family peace. I'm constantly playing that song such much to minister to my spirit, that my toddler is singing every word. I had to video her because I knew no one would've believed me if I told them. I have shed some tears, but I haven't had the chance to really break and get the crying out of my system yet because God has been and still is using me to minister to each and every person in my family, but I know I will get it out when the time comes. This is the first tradegy that has hit our family and I'm telling you, we have a million people (exaggerating but close to) in our family. I really thank God for His strength that He has instilled in me. My sister said from day one that she couldn't bury her firstborn child. I started at the Medical Examiner's office claiming his body and personal belongings to planning his homegoing through the repast. Kenny's mom called me screaming and crying the other night and I began to pray for her and minister to her. She thanked me and said, "Mama said that's all you do is sit over there and pray for this family, day in and out." I'm not only praying for our family but I'm also praying for the souls of the people who did this. I'm constantly asking God to give them a clearer mind to see what they've done. I even decreed and declared that their lives will be changed through this situation. I have 2 loving children of my own and I pray over them and plead the Blood of Jesus over their lives daily! I always did. I constantly tell the enemy that he can't have them. NOT ON MY WATCH! Lastly, deep within my heart, I feel these people have committed similar, if not the same crimes and never were caught. The reason I say this is because a person just don't go out the very next day a situation occurs and shoot down 2 people! To commit a crime so treacherous, you have to be comfortable in doing such. It was time for these people to get caught and taking off the streets. Another thing, yes you are right, no one deserves to be killed. I've always felt, if you can't give life, don't take a life. Leave that up to God. As a Christian mother, my kids could never come to me and ask me to commit a murder. If anything, I would've began to come against that spirit and rebuked them demons out of my child. I just believe none of them thought this through, even the cousin that said I sound angry-- although I'm saved, was I supposed to be happy my nephew left this earth at the age of 24? I am human and yes I was angry at the enemy and this whole situation! Again thanks and stay blessed.

I just want to share this Quainka, Greg, Dion, David, Javon, Dominique, the family members and friends that think murder is right and anyone else who wants to read it:(Q=question and A=Answer)
Q. Why Should We Value Life?
A. "Know that the LORD Himself is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture" (Psalm 100:3).
"Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the One who formed you from the womb,‘I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, stretching out the heavens by Myself, and spreading out the earth all alone ...'" (Isaiah 44:24).
"But now, O LORD, Thou art our Father, we are the clay, and Thou our potter; and all of us are the work of Thy hand" (Isaiah 64:8).
Q. Who Is Responsible for Life and Death?
A. Then God spoke all these words, saying ...'You shall not murder'" (Exodus 20:1, 13).
"I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live" (Deuteronomy 30:19).
Please know that God is in control of everything. May each of you be not only convicted by the system of the world but convicted by Holy Spirit as well. If you all truly have a relationship with God, I'm quite sure you've already been convicted by the spiteful words and actions you all having made. Me personally, I would love to sit down with the mother and just ask her what would make her as a "mother' do something as such. She didn't want anyone so as much to take her son's money as he claimed but she'd take someone else's son's life? Isn't life more valuable than $60 and a cell phone? The main thing that bothers me is that I know for a fact these items were being picked up by one of her relatives and she chose not to receive them back but to murder someone, almost 2 people. I'm really praying for her and the well being of her other children that she wouldn't so as much harm them. She doesn't know the value of someone else's child's life, including her own son's life. There just was no getting away with shooting/murdering someone this time. They did it so much before that God is not pleased and He's saying enough is enough. When have you all ever heard of an earthquake in Chicago? He is really trying to get the attention of a lot of people and they are not listening, so He's doing it His way! All I can say is if your lives are not lined up with HIS, please get it in order before the time has come!

If you Know who and you don't turn them in you are just like them. They may kill someone again.
This is something you and them will have to live with for the rest of your lives. It not going to be easy. You need to stay away from these people.
