Since Cara Petricca went public via facebook about her son, Nick Carnevale's, condition after being shot in the head back in August at October Mountain, not only has the community rallied around him, but celebrities alike.

September 16, Petricca posted a video of Aaron Lewis, (Staind), sending Nick his good vibes for a solid recovery. Lewis, who is one of Nick's favorite singers and originally from Longmeadow, MA, can be seen from time to time in The Berkshires.

Saturday night, a video of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski urging Nick to "stay strong" and "stay positive" went viral.

Check out the two videos below, Gronkowski's original, and the other including Carnevale's reaction. An open conversation regarding recent violence with Pittsfield Mayor Tyer and Pittsfield Police Chief Wynn is happening this evening (Oct. 22).
