In memory of my cousin

My cousin committed suicide with a gun, which he had bought on a credit card that no one else knew about, in order to hide it from anyone who might have been alarmed by this purchase. He shot himself when home alone, after declining an invitation by his friends and housemates to attend an outing. He was dearly loved by many, and if he hadn’t had easy access to such quick and lethal means, I believe he would still be with us today.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
