In memory of Brian Cooper

This is about the cousin of my three daughters. Brian was a young man cut down in the prime of his life in his mid 20s by the gun violence in Chicago. Around 10 years ago, it is believed that he was shot outside a party, but as of now the person that did it has not been caught or charged. It has left a lasting effect on his family. This one act of violence has taken away his mother’s only son, leaving behind four sisters and other family. The violence needs to stop.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
