    A terrible tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with each family of the victims, the Lane family plus the community of Chardon. May we reach out to each other to show our support during this very difficult time and remember to pray for the two other tragedies recently amongst young people closer to the Cleveland community on the Eastside. Our young people are the “future”. May we not let them destroy each other and remind them to speak up if they see one of their classmates is hurting somehow.
