Bobby Tillman the 18 year old who was beaten to death last weekend while dozens of people just watched, at a house party in Georgia, has been laid to rest today.
I just found out that hours before he was beat to death, Bobby attended a play at a church. The theme was TEEN-AGE BULLYING.
Tillman’s mom Monique Rezaida said her son wanted to be a good person. She relayed his words at a gathering earlier this week, as she encouraged the crowd to follow his lead.
“Bobby told me, ‘Mom, it’s OK to live right,’ ” she said.
“You have the promise of a good life,” she told the audience. “All you have to do is live right.”
She said young people must learn from what happened and stop the bullying.
“You deserve a good life,” she said. “My son deserved a good life.”
Once again I didn’t know this young man but this incident has struck a chord with me. This young man didn’t have to die. My thoughts go out to Bobby’s mom, the rest of his family, and friends.
RIP Bobby Tillman 1992-2010
