Recent De La Salle Graduate Shot and Killed in Richmond

Last night, recent De La Salle graduate, Terrance Kelly was shot and killed in Richmond, while waiting for his brother at a friend's house. The 2004 graduate was scheduled to leave for University of Oregon tomorrow on a full football scholarship.

You cannot believe how extremely pissed off I am about this. Not only did this happen to someone who went to my high school, but the incident happened in RICHMOND... which is just a mere 5 minutes away from my house. I do not understand why people in that Godforsaken city have to resort to such senseless violence. This is why I continue to say that Hercules is 10-15 minutes north of Berkeley, not 5 minutes north of Richmond.

Thanks to Nate (natetl17) for the screen cap.

I'm actually going to be on campus later on today for my sister's band picnic. I'm sure all the ENG trucks will be on campus when I get there.

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
