Baby Maddox Lawrence

Somehow, we’ve lost a sense of decency when it comes to these matters. On social media people, blaming, accusing, and spreading false information. Mourn today, there will be time for reflection on the who, what, when and why this occurred.

And the question, how we can provide the kind of community where no one is allowed to suffer mental breakdown without the proper supports? There’s so much pain on so many levels, on this day for this community.



On February 23rd we learned that after a community-wide Amber Alert and the arrest of the father, the body of 21-month-old, Maddox Lawrence was found in Syracuse’s Inner Harbor. Ryan Lawrence, baby Maddox’s father, has been charged with second-degree murder.
