Annshalike Hamilton Vigil, 2222 4th St. N.
Contributed Photo, "Holding Pond
But Not Holding Us Down"
An article in the Minneapolis Mirror gives a firsthand account of the recent vigil for murder victim Annshalike Hamilton. The article is written in a style which concentrates as much on the emotions of the writer as the newsworthy events themselves. This blog is singled out for special critical mention. Click here for article.
I would like to point out...
..."audacity" is not spelled "audasity." Doesn't the Minneapolis Mirror have some kind of spell check function for uploaded content? Mad Dads is also held up for special harsh criticism because--oh, my--some random youth strolled by and the Mad Dads didn't run right after to engage the youth, on the spot.
Trust me when I say finding random youth walking around on the streets of North Minneapolis is not hard, and there is plenty of time to engage them, after--for example--a brief vigil for a murder victim.
Somebody was kind enough to forward this blog several photos of the vigil. One of the photos illustrates this post. When I get an opportunity, I'll post the rest of the pictures.
