God help us. Jesus, Mary and all saints and all angels pray for us. 

Father, place Josh on the
stairway to Heaven
God save us from the Lost Ones who stalk the Earth stealing away life. Amen. 

Pray for the 19 year olds who die before their time.  Yesterday, they were just boys.  Amen. 

Let us pray that Joshua Proutey is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Josh Proutey's murder was the probable result of a gang initiation. It doesn't matter what color you are, you must reject the gang culture and everything that it stands for. Mothers, get your children AWAY from the evil culture of gangs, and find places to live that will be a positive influence on the lives of your children. Make your children believe that they have options in their lives!
