"He believed that the country is going to war," she said. "He believed the war was here, and look at where that got him; where it got us. Two men are dead. He is one of them. Two families have been thrown into the chaos, and everyone seems more up in arms than ever." . . . She urged peace. . . "We can still choose peace, and we can change the course of things through open communication," the sister said. "Somewhere along the way, I guess Michael lost sight of that.". . . "
