Moms Demands Action

I would like to think that my story will help someone think twice before shooting anyone without a cause. It has been 50 years since I became a victim at a high school. The first at an inner-city school. I still suffer from post-traumatic syndrome.

The man shot me at school, thinking I was a witness to his madness. He was attempting to rape a teacher, and I came in. The bullet hit me in my shoulder and exited out my back, much too close to my spine. The emotional trauma greatly affects me to this day. I recently lost my husband to leukemia, and my anxiety has come back. Please think first before using your guns, and please practice safety measures with your right to carry.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
