I want to share my personal experience to emphasize the profound impact that an armed robbery can have on an individual’s life. Following such a traumatic event in Texas, I struggled with mental health issues, which led to a suicide attempt and subsequent hospitalization. Unfortunately, law enforcement collaboration with my employer resulted in harassment, intensifying the challenges I faced. Faced with limited options, I made the difficult decision to return to my home country for additional treatment. My story underscores the urgent need for comprehensive measures to address not only gun violence but also the broader societal implications that victims may endure.
