MINNEAPOLIS - KARE 11 photographer Ben Garvin was at Lucy Craft Laney at Cleveland Park Community School on Tuesday morning to find out what children are thankful for in preparations for Thanksgiving on Thursday.
While he was there principal Mauri Melander got on the intercom and shared a heartfelt message with her students during morning announcements. Lucy Craft Laney school is located in north Minneapolis, not far from the 4th Police Precinct where protesters have been camping out for more than a week.
Melander wanted to talk to the children in light of the shooting of five protesters on Monday night. Her message was heartfelt, words that may give adults something to think about as well.
