A Fight for Peace and Humanity in Blood-Soaked Belize City

Shakira Young

According to Savery’s mother, a celebration of his life will be held on Wednesday. In an extended interview with the media, Shakera Young is appealing to the community to stand up in solidarity and bring an end to the violence.

“What I am appealing to you mothers out there: Christian mothers, non-Christian mothers, believers, non-believers, there is a God and what I am fighting for now is humanity because our society has lost it. We has lost it, all of us have lost it. Look at what they are doing to my poor child. I will celebrate my son’s life and if it kills me, I will fight for peace in this country. I want to appeal to all the people that are influential to the society: the government, Mister Barrow, Misses Barrow, Mister Aragon, Mister Whylie, Miss Phillips…everybody; all of you that are influential to these people, these animals that are running the streets—you know who they are. And yes we are not able to say that yes they are the ones that did it, but you know who did it. You know and I know who did it. You know and I know who did it, but I will let their conscience be their guide. And I will let them go home everyday; remember my face and they may know me and I just want them to know that they took away my happiness. But you didn’t take me away. Because what happened to Tyler…he was the calm before the storm and I am the storm and I am prepared to advocate for peace within this country.”

    Shakera, I can only imagine the pain you are going through as a mother myself this breaks my heart. I am praying that the killer is found and you get some type of solace from this heinous crime.
