In memory of Reginald Long

In 1984, I cried when my cousin, Reginald Long, died by gun suicide. He planned it, but it is still very hard. He was only 19-years-old at the time. He was always happy-go-lucky. Our family still doesn’t have closure from his death. Gun violence needs to stop. It can be stopped.
