I’m a survivor of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, which occurred in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest music festival. July 4th fireworks use to be a fun celebration, but their loud noises and pops now bring back awful memories of gunfire from that night. It’s just another hurdle that I’ll overcome, but never expected. When you experience gun violence, it makes you see the world differently, but every day does get better.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
