In memory of Ahmad

My first experience of senseless gun violence on October 2, 2016, when my son Rashad received a call from my son Ahmad’s friend that Ahmad had been shot. Ahmad was away in college attending a house party at a friend’s apartment. Some unwanted guest started an altercation and was made to leave the party. They shot three times into the apartment, and one bullet hit Ahmad and another hit a girl too. Both my son Ahmad and the girl Alisia were killed with gun injuries. This has made me want to help get better gun laws to protect others. My life has been changed forever. My son was an innocent bystander. Signed, Broken-hearted Mom.
