Thank you for posting this. I lived in the Parkside District I grew up with several of these young people that lost their lives. I was a Brownie with Carol Alamsha in elementary school. Went to elementary, junior high and high school with Carol. Her cousin also died with her that night, another beautiful girl, I think her name was Donna. I hung out with Alana Lee and remember her always. All sweet people I still remember growing up with. I remember a song they played in their Honor at a funeral. "It's a Beautiful Morning" I always think of them. I remember the happiness they gave and not the sadness. Thank you for giving me insight.
