total hearts received for Moments That Survive


In honor of Mareko "Reko" Thomas

My only child, Reko, was gunned down 21 years ago, one day shy of leaving for college. Although it has been many years, it still seems like yesterday. The pain has subsided, but my heart still aches for him. I can still see a fleeting moment of him racing through the neighbor’s backyard, smiling when I call his name.

Guns have destroyed precious lives. Please help me and countless others to put the guns down and end violence!
