A Junior Remembers

| June 04, 2009, 06:57 PM | 4 Comments

cloudArundel Senior High School will forever remember Christopher Jones. He was a freshman at my high school for the majority of the year, but with 2,000 students, it is hard to know everyone. I never got the chance to get to know him personally, but I do know that Chris was a nice person to everyone he talked to. I had talked to him once or twice with a yearbook question, but never really knew him outside of school, or other than just knowing he was a freshman and he went to the same school as me.

Last Saturday was a day that changed many lives forever. Many people, some who had never even met him, gave their support to family and friends. Over the rest of the weekend, several Facebook groups were formed, many text messages were sent, and countless prayers were prayed. People decided that as a school, we should come together and wear black the following Monday in remembrance of Chris.

When I came to school that Monday morning, I was shocked to see all of the students who wore black. It was at that moment that I realized the sense of pride our school holds, and the lengths people will go to support fellow Wildcats; even if they didn’t know them. Though Chris Jones was only a Wildcat for about a year, he was still a treasured member of our school and we will forever hold him in out hearts. It didn’t matter whether one was a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior; whether they had known him for awhile or had only seen him in passing; we all joined together to cherish his life and remember the good times.

Rest in Peace Chris Jones. You will never be forgotten.

    It is dangerous to allow a group of kids to all wear black as that is symbolic of a gang and could lead to fighting in the streets. furthermore, there are two sides to every story and Chris was far from an innocent victim according to police intelligence collected after the incident.

  2. Mike Nance says:

    I’m not sure how Chris cannot be the innocent one when multiple people gang up on him and beat him to death. I truly hope that the two involved never see the light of day.

    I am also curious as to why this is not considered a hate crime. Maybe it is because it was two black kids beating up a white kid instead of the other way around.

    And P.S. You’re an idiot.

    “there are two sides to every story and Chris was far from an innocent victim according to police intelligence collected after the incident”

    Yea…care to elaborate? From all I have read Chris was certainly the victim…too say otherwise is displaying once ignorance and in essence justifying the actions of the killers. Are you saying he (Chris) deserved this? Why not a hate crime? Because in the PC world hate crime is purely white on black…didn’t you get the memo?
