Justice for Antonio
On March 7th was just another normal Saturday for Tara and her family. They loved to be together at all chances possible. They never expected the worse. While going to dinner around 5:30pm a estranged man followed their vehicle and fired what is believed to be 2 shots one of them hitting the back windshield of their vehicle but also striking Antonio in the head. He was sent to UK with life threatening conditions and underwent a 3 hour surgery - he is fighting for his life as every second passes.
Antonio is a 9 year old son to Tara, a older brothr to 2 boys and he has an older sister. He is a smart kid, does well in school, and is exceptional on the soccer field. He loves soccer, Messi is his favorite player.
He and I argued over who was gonna win the World Cup this year - and when I was right I had to call and rub it in.
He is so young, has his life and future ahead of him. In just a few weeks his family is set to move into my house and get them out of the area they are in.
Lets help this boy, and his family. Surgeries are expensive, and while the parents tend to his needs in the hospital income is going to be limited. Lets raise enough money so we can help the family and Antonio during this hard time.

Antonio is in my daughters's class at school. She is very heartbroken to hear about her friend. He would chase her around the playground all the time. Please tell him that Daniela hopes he pulls through so he can continue his chase. Prayers for the family!
