Looking to the Future While Keeping the Memory Alive

May, 10, 2024

It has been nearly two years since the horrific, racially-driven mass shooting took the lives of loved ones at a Tops supermarket in Buffalo, New York. Residents continue to honor them and enrich their city. On that sad day, Lieutenant Aaron Salter Jr. gave his life to save the lives of others. Creating this story about the victims and how Western New Yorkers are keeping their memories alive, was very personal for me. I had covered stories for the news in the neighborhood where this tragedy occurred many times and the people there were always so welcoming. Lieutenant Salter even went out of his way to make sure I stayed safe as I filmed a story on a busy street. Starting this weekend, through June 24, there will be a 5K race, a celebrity golf tournament, and a gala to raise funds for a charity which honors the victims by helping Buffalo’s rising generation.
