October 12, 2013, the day my life changed forever by gun violence. My son, Christian, was trying to pick up his daughter for his pre-arranged weekend when his father-in-law decided to pick up a .22 rifle and take his life. Our son spent his final moments of life facedown on a porch, bleeding and gasping from the six bullets his father-in-law emptied into his body, four of which struck his back, when his father found him. Our family was devastated, and our granddaughter lost her father. We will forever be his voice and speak out against gun violence.
