The death of a 6-month-old baby girl in Cleveland moved LeBron James to action on Thursday night. James decried the girl's death, which was the result of a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting.
On a day where President Obama expressed disgust in the aftermath of a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, which reportedly left 10 dead, James took to Twitter to send a clear, simple message: Do better.
This is a man who's fed up with his city's violence, and rightly so -- the baby girl's killing marks Cleveland's third shooting death involving a child in the past month.
James didn't come out calling for gun control laws, anti-gang initiatives or other matters of social policy. But something as heinous and senseless as a baby girl getting shot in the chest and dying doesn't only need to lead to calls for new policies. It can also lead to a call for us all to be better people to each other.
