  1. Mr. Miller, you said it exactly the way it is. (57sec) “These are the type of stories that make grown men cry”.
    I think you spoke for all of us Lakewood residents sharing in the pain.

  2. Sir, you speak for all of us. May god bless this family to find solace and comfort knowing that we are all joined in unity in mourning over this tragedy.

  3. I know its too soon to lecture … but..

    PLEASE parents I beg of you.. no more letting your 4 year olds wander unattended in developments. The attitude of “it cant happen to me” clearly proved wrong this week. PLEASE protect your children.

  4. Menashe, keep up the good work for all that you do with your golden heart. You are the beacon of light during these turbulant times.

  5. This release from the Mayor’s office exhibits a healthy blend of leadership, compassion and appreciation.

    Leadership – by speaking up and expressing all our collective feelings
    Compassion – to the family and extended family
    Appreciation – to the multitudes of Lakewood volunteers

  6. I am not a citizen of Lakewood and wish I could call you my Mayor. You are indeed a fine human being with so much compassion and emotion and put that before being a politician. Keep up the excellent work.
    Last but not least, I send my condolences to this young boys family may he rest in peace….. My heart breaks for you!!!!!

  7. ur right mr miller theses stories do make grown men cry. i was one of them. It doesn’t matter who we are in Lakewood if you have children you share the pain and loss. upon haring the news while driving to work this morning my eyes got teary as i imagine what it must be like to lose a child in such a horrific manner. my eyes still get teary as i write this and pray to god to take leiby into his kingdom.

    it reminds me that no matter what differences we have in lakewood we share one thing in common and that is the love for our children when it comes to that we are all the same, we all cry

  8. Mr. Miller, if you are reading this I want to thank you for what you said. Your words were few but very meaningful.

    ( I met you once at Kimbal Hospital when I went to visit my elderly mom. You went and got me some kosher pastries when I randomly bumped into you and asked if you knew where a snack vending machine might be.
    You weren’t the mayor yet at the time but I knew right then and there that you were destined for greatness.
    Keep up the good work and may you keep on helping others.)

  9. Thank you Mr. Mayor for your eloquent words. We all feel it. May this tragic event continue to bring us closer. May we learn to appreciate each moment that we live, and learn to make living better for all those we connect to. Let’s accentuate the positive in ourselves & in others, and strive to bury the negative. May Leiby’s ZT”L memory stay with us & help us choose the right roads in life. Amen.

  10. Every city, every state, every country the children must be told what can happen at any given time, it does not matter religion, or race, the children must all be watched at all times. A movie was told to us many years ago
    (moderated) we all watched and were all very scared. It made you cry. however we sat down with our children and watched. We talked to our children, we explained the best that we could. All parents should make their children aware of things in this world that can happen and do every day. Speak to your children, make them safe.
