Serena Jameka Williams is an American professional tennis player, who has a total of 23 Grand Slam singles which gives her the records for most Grand Slams wins in the Open Era. Serena and her sister Venus attended a panel hosted by ESPN’s Jemele Hill and other community activists and Serena’s sister Yetunde Price came up.
Price was killed in 2003 during a drive-by shooting in Compton, California at the age of 31 but even though 14 years have gone by, Serena still cries over her sister’s murder. ‘Well, violence has affected our lives personally — we lost our sister, she was the oldest — to violence. But I think what people don’t realize is how violence really affects not only your family but your friends, your neighbors, everyone.
And it’s … I’m going to stop there.’ Her words were utterly moving as the audience was hushed when Serena couldn’t continue her words. Unfortunately, violence is a big issue and everyone has dealt with or known someone who has suffered at the hands of violence. Big sister, Venus continued saying: ‘Maybe I can help her continue.
Also, violence not only affects the victim’s family but also the family of the perpetrator. It ruins their lives as well. If you’re a mother or father, it’s not your plan to have your child commit this. It ruins lives. I think one of the hardest days of all of our lives was having to tell our sister’s children what happened to their mom.
You can’t prepare for that.’ At Celebritist, we think the William’s sisters are amazingly wise with their words and it’s clear that its due to their awful experience. We think it’s also amazing that they continued with their philanthropic work. What do you think of the issue with violence?
