A remarkable and touching piece by a blogger friend of mine. It’s sad that St. Louisans can barely go a week without loved ones dying. This man’s efforts will not go to be ignored. Just as he made a dedication to do what was necessary to influence change in the black community, we need to take that stand as well.
On October 17th, 2014 Robert Edward Torrence was shot while standing in the front yard of his home; his life slipped away a few hours later and he was no longer Robert Torrence he was homicide victim number 117. Before October 17th, 2014 Robert who was often called King was more than just a number; he was a father of 4 amazing children, a brother and a son, he was also my friend. He was not a thug or a drug dealer he was not the intended target; but the streets seem to take no prisoners and show no mercy.
