Don't tell a shooting victim's mom to 'Get Over It'

Each shooting involves real people - not statistics

Ahmir Jolliff, a sixth-grade student at Perry Middle School, was killed when 17-year-old Dylan Butler opened fire in the cafeteria shared by Perry's middle and high schools. Seven others, including the high school's principal, were injured. In an obituary published in the Des Moines Register, Ahmir's family wrote that he leaves behind a "legacy of love, compassion, and advocacy for those in need." The family also asked that those saying their farewells strive to carry on that legacy and share his "unwavering determination to make the world a brighter place."

Ahmir was font of happiness and sociability, who seemingly knew everyone in town and whose ample dimples were constantly lit up by a perpetual grin, his mom Erica Jolliff, told the Associated Press late Friday evening. “He was so well-loved and he loved everyone,” she said. “He’s such an outgoing person.” This article originally appeared on Des Moines Register: Iowa school shooting victim Ahmir Jolliff's funeral to be held in Perry
