OXFORD, Michigan, November 30, 2022 ~ Luminaries lined the streets of Oxford Wednesday evening as the community came together to reflect on the one year anniversary of the tragic high school shooting that took the lives of Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana, and Justin Shilling.
Scenes across Oakland County brought pause to those hustling through the harsh night’s chill, with the flickers of each lone candle collectively uniting to represent what it has meant this past year to be Oxford Strong.
November 30, 2022 ~ Jennifer Chambers, education reporter for the Detroit News, talks with 760 WJR‘s Guy Gordon on the one year anniversary of the Oxford High School shooting about her recent interviews with the victims’ families.
(CONTINUED) “Every family had a different story for me,” Detroit News Education Reporter Jennifer Chambers told 760 WJR’s Guy Gordon about her article on how those affected are coping one year later.
“Justin Shilling’s mother, Jill talked to me about what those initial days were like … what a blur it was, and how she was on auto pilot … trying to understand what happened.”
“Here we are a year later, and she says the grief is very different. She says the time hasn’t helped … it’s worse. It’s starting to settle in now that this is permanent.”
“So many students at Oxford High who may have been just around the corner or down the hall who didn’t necessarily hear anything or maybe see anything … everyone who was in that building that day was still impacted by this trauma.”
“Just because you weren’t shot or wounded, doesn’t mean that you’re not worthy of getting some support and help.”
