Peace for Peoria

On November 20, 2018 I took a photo of a statue that was placed on Jefferson street on the South Side of Peoria by Tom & Pierre at UFS. With their own money, they wanted to provide a place of peace and tranquillity to try to heal some of the pain the violence in our community has caused.  Prior to erecting the statue, they showed me their plans and talked about why they felt compelled to provide this. 
TODAY...some lost soul or souls have caused $15,000 worth of damage.  This continues to cause pain. Because of the existence damage, the statue needs to be replaced. WILL YOU HELP?  I’m starting a go fund me campaign to try to help with the cost. WILL YOU HELP?  No amount is too small to try to bring peace and restore the love that the scripture on the statue invokes.  THANK YOU SO MUCH AND MAY THE LORD CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU
