A little girl was killed in a collision with a car just down the street. A very sad situation. I had seen the family a few times. Looked like they were having a hard time.

Like with my family, there are people who notice things are tough, but don't know how to help. When things are in crisis mode then they know what to do. I'm in the same boat. Thinking about helping to raise money for funeral services.

The news did a story and I was looking at the comments. Mostly about blaming and punishing. Like that will bring back the girl or prevent other families from having a hard time. We need to create jobs, and so much more, so that we can support families.

Though the collision may have not been preventable, it may have not been a fatality with slower traffic. Considering how much residential housing is near Zuni and how many pedestrians there are maybe it is time to look at better traffic calming.

The area where this happened is a high crime/violence area. There needs to be better lighting and more services to help prevent violence.

My heart goes out to this family.
