I was shot seven times by my daughter’s ex-boyfriend 10 years ago. I survived, but my daughter died in my arms. He shot her nine times. She was only 23. I don’t know what is worse — living without my baby girl or surviving without her in my life. I survived for a reason — to spread the word on domestic violence.
