Dear King family,
I cannot imagine the pain you must be in right now. I am truly sorry that you lost your son, and that your lives have been irrevocably changed. Please know that many people are waking up to this tragedy, and are in dialogue. My college campus is starting to speak about what happened to your family and community, and we're just in shock.
Your son, though I didn't know him, possessed a beautiful soul. That is an undeniable fact. I'm just struck by how incredibly unjust this entire situation is and I will remember your son.
It is completely unfortunate that Larry was taken before he could live a full and abundant life.
Thank you for being so courageous in all of this. Thank you Lawrence King.
