In Memory of Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Columbia Mall shooting (read more here).

Rather than talk about the events that happened, the who, the why, I want to use today's entry to simply honor the memory of Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson, two members of our community who lost their lives too young. My thoughts and prayers are with the families whose lives are now affected everyday because of this senseless tragedy.

The photo above was taken the day the mall re-opened. Notes of support were written on the wall of the boarded store. As time went on, the wall became completely covered, and flowers, stuffed animals, and other tokens were left in the memory of the victims.
