When asked what she would say to the suspected shooter, Ferguson said, “I would tell him I forgive him because, a lot of times, they don’t know what they’re doing. That’s all I’d say.” "I taught Demetrius not to live in the past, to live in today and forgiveness is divine. You have to forgive everything. God’s grace is new each and every day," she said. "Until you’ve walked in another person’s shoes, you don’t know what made him come to this point."
"It’s in God’s hands. Let his will be done."
"God knew what he was doing. It’s not for my understanding, but mine to accept and remember him as he was," Ferguson said.
