One Struggle Reaches Out to Grieving Mothers

Philip Willoughby

In the wake of the violent weekend, grassroots organization One Struggle has been reaching out to grieving families in each of the affected neighborhoods.  Led by former city councilor Philip Willoughby the distraught mothers turned social activists are making a bold effort at providing support for their inconsolable peers.  This afternoon, they were at the home of Leroy Meighan, but have been doing their rounds since the deadly shootings began on Friday.

 

Philip Willoughby, Spokesperson, One Struggle

“What we’ve done since these unfortunate and violent crimes began last week Friday, leading up to over the weekend, we’ve endeavored our extremely very best to try and reach out to the family members of those who lost their loved ones and what the One Struggle mothers and the group has agreed to is that one: we will reach out to support the families who lost their loved one.  We will set a schedule and do those visits and what we will determine is to understand the level of support the families may need.  To this end, I can speak to two families that I have spoken with; a few of the mothers did reach out to two of the other families.  But first off, let me say and send my condolences to each and every family who lost their loved ones over the weekend.  I met with the grandmother of the young man who is the delivery guy.  He has children, I don’t know that they want to disclose the information or the sad fact to the children and to this end I can say that the children do need psychological help.  In terms of the Meighan family, we will do the same.  I believe the young man, I am not certain of the name of the young man be reaching out to the Meighan family…also the Baizar, Lopez and Williams families.”
