Join us on June 7-9th for Wear Orange, as we unite in our call to end gun violence and honor the more than 120 people who are shot and killed, and hundreds more who are wounded and traumatized, every day in our country. Read some of the stories of those affected by gun violence below.

After serving six years in the US Army and arriving home unscathed, I went to work in a local drugstore and was shot during an armed robbery. So was my store manager. The thieves were apparently undergoing a gang initiation, and the mission was to shoot someone. They got away with less than $23. I thank God that even though I was out of work for a year I am 90 percent restored and able to fully perform my duties. But I always wonder what senseless behavior could have been prevented; the same robbers were convicted of 13 similar crimes, and I relive this every time they come up for parole.
