“And A Little Child Shall Lead Them”: The Wisdom Behind The Justice For Vanessa “Honey” Malone Movement

Now that many from within the American Public have their eyes squarely centered on the small Atlanta suburban town of Stone Mountain, Georgia in the wake of the senseless murder of 18-year-old Vanessa Marie Malone, a strong youth movement having mobilized to advocate for justice in her killing, and considering how rapid the teen’s case has spread worldwide, the murder case now has people wondering what is so different in Stone Mountain. Violent crimes occur every day in this country without the massive support we see in Malone’s case from concerned citizens who are eager, and unafraid to speak out against such violence. The standard has always been universal within American Culture that no one would dare cooperate or tell what they know, consistent and in concert with a strict street code of silence. Fortunately that’s not how some of the late teen’s peers see it. One of Malone’s best friends has launched a massive effort to spread the word about Malone’s senseless and tragic murder mystery. That’s an extremely bold posture for a young woman living in the “Stop Snitching” generation. Instead of the typical ridicule and persecution which normally follows such an uncharacteristic individual response related to violent crime, Keah Clayton has effortlessly & single-handily ushered Malone’s murder case onto a Word Stage via Social Media. Her efforts have also spurred multiple groups who are in fact mobilizing within the Stone Mountain Community and surrounding areas, with scheduled dates to hand out flyers detailing the murder case. Other groups have began soliciting #JusticeForHoney T-shirts from various online manufacturing sources. The wave on interest in the teen’s case isn’t just isolated in the Stone Mountain community, but rather from distant places as far as California, Arizona, and Canada respectively. With over 120,000 likes to the slain teen’s R.I.P. Honey Facebook page which was set up in her honor, growing daily, it’s beyond reasoning that National Media hasn’t picked up the Vanessa “Honey” Malone murder case. The teen’s case has made it’s rounds on various crime advocacy forums such as here on The People’s Champion Blog, Lipstick Alley, Crime Slueths, and others. News of the case possibly being aired on the Nationally Syndicated “The Breakfast Club” morning talk show in New York City, and possible involvement by Actor Will Smith has been circulating. Needless to say, the grassroots effort by Keah Clayton has sparked an unprecedented Movement against violent crime for her slain friend, and just may set a new standard in community action when young people’s lives are stricken down in senseless street violence. Clayton’s actions depict a distinct sense of bravery, loyalty, perseverance in the face of adversity, and has afforded her praise from followers of the case whom have defined her actions as true love and friendship toward the slain Malone youth. However, societies observation of this case must not rest solely on Clayton’s actions. The entire story must be promoted and utilized as a textbook case analysis to aid in curing the plague of violent street culture impacting communities throughout the country & the world alike. Perhaps this “Movement” by American youth would be best dubbed as a “Movement” against violent culture. The message to our youth must be described as “what will happen when one person says, enough” and stands up for righteousness. In the Bible the word of God as depicted in the Book of Isiah: Verse 6 clearly says, “and a child shall lead”. This scripture was echoed in a comment on the R.I.P. Honey Facebook page by a suspected older relative of Clayton’s. The post reads, “And a child shall lead them, Honey can lead her peers out of the darkness of silence that has allowed for so many of our babies lives to be stolen under a “false sense of street honor” that has done nothing but given COWARDS a place to hide. The only winners in this silence is the criminals.” In many respects our youth are in fact leading the way to usher in a new era of social change and justice. It seems sadly though, that the child leading the way in this instance is no longer with us, but we thank God for a friend in Keah Clayton.
