Words cant really describe how much love was shown tonight. Dustyn Hunt had a amazing effect on everyone he met. To see so many people show up and just express nothing but love is overwhelming. Im glad I got to talk a little bit. There is alot that needs to be said about the how and why of Dustyns death. But the truth is that it was entirely avoidable and completely unnecessary. The Snohomish county sheriffs office is doing there job and I respect that….But the facts are there. Gun violence is a all to familiar story these days. And this is just another sad chapter in a long book of avoidable violence. But we are capable of changing things. And we will. #JusticeforNabii #JusticeforDustyn Me and Lisa Hunt would like to thank every single person that came out to share there stories and help us cope with this tragedy. Your Love is amazing and we love you right back. Please be kind to eachother. Because tomorrow isnt guaranteed. @tattooedbaker13 @chefrogerquintana @prettyboinabii
