I took my little sister and her boyfriend up the block in Little Five Points in Atlanta for dinner. Some kids ran up behind us and one of them held a gun to her boyfriend’s head. In a split second, he lowered the gun and shot him in the stomach. They ran away. I hid my sister and her boyfriend and raced for the nearest phone. He lived, but my sister and her boyfriend have never loved life again. They used to be full of love and life, but that was extinguished for them.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
