Vaya Con Dios Levi King Flores

Posted by shadmia on January 20, 2010

The gang violence that brought an end to the life of 17-year-old Levi King Flores could not dampen the spirits of the hundreds of people who showed up at the wake and funeral services for the Newburgh youth. Sure, there was almost universal sadness and tears for a life that ended way too soon but there was also the strength of spirit that unified everyone, knowing that he was loved.

“No mother should bury a son, no daughter should bury a father, whatever happened today should not be happening again, we should not be burying our youth,” Fr. Fernando Hernandez of St. Patrick’s Church, Newburgh.

However some of Levi’s friends see things quite differently:

“We’ve got one thing on our mind and that’s revenge, you know. That’s how it is, if the cops can’t help us who’s going to help us” Sergio Nava.
