at sassysagesays we often highlight girls/young women who are doing amazing things. this time we are switching it up and honoring a young man, Arshell Dennis, a student at St. John’s University, a thought leader and organizer.  

he was shot dead in a senseless act of mistaken identity.   tragically this happened over the weekend as he was visiting his mother to surprise her for her birthday.

as a member of the st. john’s community, i am sending prayers to his family and friends. chicago, where he was from and many cities in our country are under siege with this type of violence.   

it’s more than time to stop shooting.  our world is losing too many bright minds and giving hearts.  may he and the many others that are lost to gun violence RIP.

here is an interview he did last year. you can see how passionate he was about making a difference. sadly he will not get the chance.
