Chaun Ballard: “I was raised in St. Louis and San Bernardino, but my wife and I currently live abroad and are working as educators. News from the States rarely comes to us quickly. Today my brother posted a news broadcast, which featured a video of the twelve-year-old Tamir Rice being shot. It shocked us both. I don’t think that anything else needs to be said.” (website)
