Richard Collins III honored at graduation with empty chair

Sadly, we see horrible stories everyday but sometimes a story stops you and for me the Richard Collins III story is one of them. This wonderful young man should have graduated today from Bowie State University instead his family is planning his funeral. He planned a military career and Saturday night he was visiting friends on the campus of the University of Maryland. He was stabbed to death on Saturday night. He was simply waiting for his ride back to his campus. This was a young man who did everything right and the actions of a thug denied him his promising future. This hurts. We pray and grieve for the family and we hope to see justice served.
