I like to say that even though I have peace, there is a small stormy cloud that follows me around. It is a cloud called fear. The fear is always there. It is the reality as a domestic gun violence survivor that I live with. I know that (he) will be out on the streets again … and my life will again be in danger. But I choose to remain a survivor. Thankful for every moment of everyday.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
