Keeping Jordan's memory alive
JACKSONVILLE Fla.-- Nearly a week after Jordan Davis's death, friends and family are still struggling to make sense of the horrible way he was killed, but they're making sure he didn't die in vain; turning their tragedy into a lesson.
"Life is too short," said Jordan Davis's best friend Darrian Flowers.
The family hopes homemade t-shirts with Jordan's picture will bring awareness to violence and spread peace among his peers.
"I definitely protest against violence and against people and stupidity madness rage and anger, in all this that's going on in the world now it's crazy that someone has to die because of something so simple," said Flowers.
Flowers heard the message loud and clear and he's trying to spread it by spreading the shirts through the halls at Wolfson.
"They handed out a couple boxes of them and his dad's going to come up to the school and hand out some more," said Flowers.
Friends know they'll never bring back Jordan, but they hope they can save other lives by shedding light on his best friend's death.
"I hope people as who Jordan is when they see the shirt so I can tell them he's my best friend and he died over something senseless over his favorite thing in the whole world, music," said Flowers.
