Medford Interfaith Vigil Honors South Carolina victims

Excerpts from Neil Osborne, President Mystic Valley Area NAACP on Charleston South Carolina tragedy who gave keynote address during Interfaith Vigil.

Even though the shooting took place 1,000 miles away — at Charleston’s historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church — the tragedy still has implications for Medford and all communities.

“That kid at 21 didn’t just roll out of bed hating black people. There was a system that encouraged him, that got to him and then we have a tragedy.”
