In memory of Troy Maurice Harris

On December 28, 2008, our beloved and devoted son, brother, father, uncle, cousin and dear friend Troy Maurice Harris was shot multiple times and killed on U Street SE as he used this body to shield a young mother and her child. He left behind to cherish his memory two children of his own. He truly was our hero. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t miss him.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
