A very close friend of mine Joshua was murdered and passed away a month ago yesterday. He was a man who would make sure he could lend a hand wherever it was needed, someone who was loved a respected by everyone who knew him.
Joshua's passing hit me really hard as you always look at these types of news stories on the news and say how bad it is but it doesn't actually hit home until it is one of your own that is taken or effected. With his funeral fast approaching - I'm now in the realisation that I will only get to see him and say goodbye one more time which for someone aged 23, shouldn't be the case.
Knife crime is something that is damaging UK families and communities everyday, so if you can play a part in trying to combat this, please do as you would be saving so many lives in the long run. And always remember to pay respect and show love to all your friends and family as you never know what's around the corner!
As cliche as it may sound, I've set up this page to try and reduce the amount of friends and family that'll have to go through the same thing.
