Nathaniel Shani, 14, here he is in his ATC uniform, by all accounts a good lad, certainly part of a good society, making good choices. Died on Friday stabbed to death.2 lads, 13 and 14 years old in custody. Because of one simple choice 3 lives devastated, 3 families futures changed foreverWe have to stop this, get the message across, #leaveitinthedrawer if you don’t carry a Knife you can’t kill someone. Did the 2 lads really want to be murderers, or did they want to be ‘big’ men. They are now small, scared, alone, facing demons that they will never overcome. Years in the justice system, their futures stolen, just as their victims future has been stolen.Help us get our message across, help us work with youth groups to start developing an anti knife carrying culture, right from an early age. Making your son a good lad isn’t enough, it may not save them. We need a change, it will take time, it will take dedication and it will take love.Today Rebecca Ann runs partly for the love of our stabbing victim Michael Allen but also because we are desperate to save lives.
