Honoring my Brother, Demitri

Before sunrise on Oct. 11, my life was forced to a standstill when my mom called me in a panic to tell me that my little brother, 19-year-old Demitri Crockett, had been shot and killed by a still-unidentified assailant the evening before.

The last thing that I said before he (went home) was, “If you get scared, just walk up the hill and knock on my door and I’ll protect you.”
