October 5, 2016: Superhero Funeral Held for 6-Year-Old Shooting Victim

funeralMourners paid tribute to 6-year-old Jacob Hall at his funeral this morning by wearing superhero costumes. The Townville, South Carolina boy was fatally shot at his kindergarten in late September when a 14-year-old allegedly opened fire on the school’s playground.

Young Jacob, who loved superheroes, was taken to hospital, but tragically died on October 1.

During the service, one speaker said that superhero stories are about good versus evil. “We live in a dark world,” but “the good” will win, he said, adding that Jacob would tell the community to return to the school to prove evil did not win.
