On the night of July 10, 2023, in North Charleston, South Carolina, my boyfriend and I were caught in a crossfire because of individuals arguing at a local business. As we were driving, a stray bullet hit my car, and one came through my window, hit me in my arm and shattered my bone.

This was the worst night of my life. We are very lucky to be alive, and I am currently still healing, physically and mentally. I hope one day we will receive justice and suspects will be found.
