I just landed from LA & came straight to the Bronx to say a prayer & pay my respects to Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz. I had chills in this spot. So much love out there tonight for him. This innocent boy and his family have been on my mind & my heart nonstop…it’s heartbreaking what happened to him. I’m posting this because I have a platform to spread love and light on his life because most of what u see on the gram is the horrific way he died. Praying for you Junior and your mom and your whole family. Would love to help his family in anyway I can. If anyone can connect me pls do. There is also a go fund me account. This hurts 💔🙏🏽Rest in heaven & be at peace Junior 🕊💔🙏🏽😢 #justiceforjunior #justiceforjunior

While I’m up & starting my day… I remembered someone sending me a photo of a mother & her child Lesandro “JUNIOR” Guzman-Feliz, a 15 year old who lived in the Bronx, New York that was mistaken for someone else & brutally attacked by 5 cowards, drug out of a corner store in his own neighborhood & stabbed repeatedly with 2 machete’s & 3 knives. 15 years old… I watched the video & wished I hadn’t & im still in disbelief… I can only imagine how terrified, confused & alone he must’ve been during what would be the last few minutes of his life & that alone hurts even me deeply !!! & the pain his mother & family must feel right now has to be tremendous. I am utterly disgusted with this story & how a life can be taken away from a child in that manner. My heart goes out to his immediate family & definitely to his mother. I am so sorry for your loss. I really hate the blind ignorance in this country especially when it takes a childs life. Losing a child is my absolute worst nightmare & this has sincerely touched me. Also sorry for feelings or pain brought back about with this post as I was just made aware of this tragedy this a few days ago & forgot to post 🙏🏾 #JusticeForJunior
