Silent Screams in the Shadows of Love
Hi Everyone,
My name is Saudis Veal and I'm the mother of the beautiful Raven Veal and grandmother of Ra'liyah Rickmon (the two beautiful smiles you see in this picture). On the night of November 9, 2016, my life was forever changed when I got the news that Raven, whom was 9 months pregnant with my grandson (Jace), had been murdered on the streets of New Orleans.
Raven Veals was the youngest of three daughters. Being the youngest Raven was a sweet, spoiled little cupcake with eyes like the ocean and a smile like the sun. She was loved dearly and had a heart bigger than this world. A heart that unfortunately would lead to her untimely death.
On November 9, 2016, Raven's heart shattered as she tried to walk away from a confrontation that lead to her 3 years old daughter being thrown out of a car. Trying to protect herself and her kids, Raven tried to get away but couldn't. She was hit and rolled over by an automobile then shot multiple times and left for dead as her young daughter watched from near by crying. The gunman then turned the gun to Ra'liyah who escaped the gunfire with help from a bystander. As a result, Ra'Liyah is left not only physical, injured from the injuries from her being thrown out the vehicle, but parentless as her dad was murdered two years prior. Although I look at Ra'Liyah and thank god she's still here I'm just left with one question. How? How could a man kill his pregnant girlfriend, unborn son and attempt to kill her daughter as well?
When you give birth to your children you never think to prepare for their death. You do all you can for them, you raise them, love them and give them your all. As a mother, that's what I did. Although I may have fell short on finances and failed to get insurance for Raven, I overcompensated with my time and love!
I need you all to help put my baby and grandson to rest. Please donate and share raven's story. Anything will help us!!! And if I could help anyone please feel free to contact me via facebook.

Thanks,
Saudis Veal
