Bennett memorial service on Wednesday

by Barca Blog

Here's the latest update on Rajaan Bennett's memorial service and funeral, courtesy of Michael Carvell from the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
McEachern High School will have a memorial service at 7 p.m. Wednesday for Rajaan Bennett, the recent Vanderbilt football signee who was shot to death last Thursday.

Visitation has been tentatively planned for 6-8 p.m. on Friday, with the Bennett’s funeral the next day at 11 a.m. Saturday — both at First Baptist Church of Powder Springs. However, the venue could be changed to Trinity Chapel Church of God because it has a larger sanctuary.
Since the tragedy, we've read story after story about what an extraordinary young man Rajaan was to his family and community. You can really see it in the following video, which took place during his junior year at McEachern. 

I've watched the clip 20-30 times since last Thursday. It just hurts to think about why he had to lose his life for such a senseless crime.
