- An absolutely devastating, horrid & gut-wrenching tragedy has occurred to the Christian Family.

On Thursday evening the Christian Family of 4, were heading SB on I- 75 on their way home after basketball practice for Bj (9 year old son), when their Truck was riddled with countless, senseless bullets, Enough to sever the functionalities of the vehicle. Their mindsets so far from criminal behavior they assumed it was only a typical car malfunction/tire blow but instead it was the beginning of a Nightmare. Within seconds they realized that Brison (2 1/2 year old son) had been severely hit and then that Bj had been grazed. After being separated to get to emergency medical attention, they later had to find out that Brison had succumb to his wounds. Making only our memories of him to be stamped as a child forever.

The Christians are a young, black, hardworking married couple that consists of Tempestt and Brian, Brian Jr and Brison. A wholesome family, that didn’t bother anybody because the only focus was their family flourishing, supporting family & friends & continually striving for better which had it been until now. They truly give their kids the life you dream to give them, they work hard, and are passionate about the people they love and have in their lives.
Brison was an adorable, sweet, lovable, well mannered and smart baby boy! His favorites were cars and cookies, playing with his big brother Bj, overloading his favorite girl, Mommy, with kisses & love, and sports fun with Dad. He was truly everything they prayed for, after a failed pregnancy, Brison came along as their ANGEL Baby and that he will forever be.

In Brison, we not only lost a Angel on earth, but a son, a little brother to Bj, a grandson, a nephew, a cousin and a friend.. We will forever be scarred, but in his name, we will get Justice & Make Change!!

****The only reason why I can even rise above to write this out is because I understand my assignment in this moment. All, Vanessa, I personally ask is that, you all that have been touched in anyway fulfill yours and help with what you can. Their road ahead is definitely uncertain in so many areas but we know making the load lighter in anyway is what will assist in easing the blow. ****

To the City of Detroit: We have to keep this fight going so we can make Brison the LAST baby to ever have to go through such a senseless crime.
