In honor of Antoine Leazer

On January 17, 2019, my son was shot seven times by his friend. My son lost his kidney and has permanent nerve damage in his leg and other injuries that he sustained. My son was brave and fought to stay alive. He was in ICU for 42 days. He is in recovery now, doing physical therapy. I’m so grateful for his life and that he is truly blessed. Gun violence is not the solution to solve problems.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
