Dear North Side Community:
The Minneapolis Urban League is sending our prayers and condolences to Troy Lewis, who tragically lost five children to fire and who himself is struggling to survive from his own heroic attempts to save them.
The suffering and pain he is experiencing is no doubt more than any of us can imagine. He is going to need our support now, as he and his remaining children begin to recover from their physical injuries, and long-term; they have a long and difficult road ahead.
As we go about our daily lives, let's not forget this tragedy in our community and the toll it has taken on this family and all who knew them. Let's pledge to be there for Mr. Lewis in every way possible, and let's come together as a community to find ways to ensure that those of his children who perished will not be forgotten.
