Quinyetta McMillon's stirring speech about bringing her son up without a father is one of the most emotional videos you will ever see.
She told the world in an emotional press conference, "I have now been forced to raise a son who is going to remember what happened to his father." She delivered the address to a crowd of reporters outside of city hall on July 6, a day after Alton Sterling was shot dead by cops in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
In the press conference above as Sterling's son, Cameron, 15, tries to console his mother as she speaks. Eventually, the impact becomes too much and the teenager succumbs to tears as well.
In a statement on her Facebook page just after the emotional press conference, McMillon said:
"As we take time and reflect on what has transpired. I would like the media and all other conduits to allow my family time to process what is going on in this desperate time. I'm trying to get several things in order especially with a full heart in the thoughts of my son.
I want to thank all of the individuals who truly have the best interest of my son at heart. Please continue share and push out any information that comes in over the course of this time.
Again, I express my deepest gratitude to the citizens of Baton Rouge and all over the nation."
Soon after posting those remarks, McMillon linked to a story from the Advocate in Baton Rouge. She wrote the words, "Omg lord knows he didn't deserve this at all." She had told the gathered crowd outside of Baton Rouge's city hall that her son "is at an age of understanding. I hurt for him and his loss as a parent. One of the greatest fears is to see your child hurt and know there's nothing you can do."
