Can’t Understand

| September 15, 2018

What a terrible emotional week it has been for many of us hearing about the death of Botham Shem Jean. We couldn’t understand why a young life was taken, and we all felt like we knew him, even if we didn’t.

I couldn’t let this week go by without publishing this note by T.D. Jakes.

“Just leaving the funeral of #bothamshemjean and it’s difficult to articulate the barrage of emotions as I got a close look at his life, his family and the tremendous loss of such a bright, intelligent, loving person who’s life was filled with as many whites, blacks, Americans and St. Lucians. The funeral was as diverse as the United Nations and everyone’s eyes were wet. I grieve for the fatality of such a rare breed of man. I pray for the justice that every parent would expect. This picture was taken at the family’s request just before they were to say goodbye to their son. My wife and I are standing beside Botham’s Mother and father, surrounded by his siblings, my good friend @attorneycrump and a grandparent. Please pray for them.” T.D. Jakes
