I was there that day. Still to this day its the most horrific thing i have ever seen. Watching you fall.... still burns in my mind. i wanted to get to you but that kid was shooting anything that moved and i was a 17 year old kid. The only thing i could do was pray. i watched one of my friends take a round to the shoulder and another friend narrowly escape a round to the head. I remember it like it was yesterday. i still pray for you and your family often Sir. R.I.P.
