6-year-old fatally shot at SC school honored with superhero funeral

A school shooting. It's every parent's worst nightmare, and unfortunately, Roger and Renae Hall are living through it.
They sent their son Jacob to school where he was shot and killed on the playground.
Nothing can fix the hurt and pain. When nothing can fix it, all that can be done is to provide prayers and support for one another.
That is exactly what one tight knit community in South Carolina has done.
Jacob loved superheroes, so his parents asked everyone attending the funeral to come dressed as a superhero. In addition to friends and family who will attend, the entire community has gotten involved.
West Virginia based Heroes for Higher have sent Batman in his Batmobile down to the funeral.
See images related to the shooting at Townville Elementary School:
The real batman, Adam West, also sent his condolences in a tweet reading: "To Jacob's parents: I was so moved by your story. I'm praying for you to have strength. I loved Jacob, too."
The Easley Police Department wore superhero shirts under their uniforms. Even a dog hotel had their pups dress in support of Jacob's family.
To add to all of the support, entire schools are wearing super hero t-shirts to class in support of Jacob Hall day.
It's a seemingly small thing to wear a superhero shirt, but when an entire community rallies together hopefully it will provide the strength and comfort for a family that needs it.
