1. I'm not ready for a tribute mural yet

This is the kind of thing that needs to wait for a year or so. The violence in the art is a little too raw to be healing or helpful. Call it a reaction, "reactive art" or whatever the critical term is. It's sure as hell not a tribute.

4. A tribute focused on a violent act only?

It's a very strong statement but it's not a tribute.

7. I think it's absolutely perfect and appropriate.

This is a function of art. You're not supposed to be comfortable with it. If it makes you upset or mad, then it's done its job.
