In memory of Claudia Carr

My mother-in-law completed suicide on Mother’s Day 2007. She shot herself with a Smith & Wesson .22 caliber. She wasn’t found for a week, and I found her. The human psyche reacts in many different ways. I went into a rage, as my 7 year old was in the car. I will never forget the medic who said that there was nothing they could do. (After a week, and I’m a doctor.)

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
