Holding back tears Tamera said, “Alaina was very sweet and loving and kind. She was also a debater, so she would want me to debate that.”
The grieving aunt then got choked up as she said, “Our country – and it’s sad to say this but you have to be living under a rock to not believe this. Our country is sick!”
Tamera continued in tears, “It’s diseased. It needs healing – it needs healing from within.”
