Ruth Moore

Thirty-eight years ago, I was shot in both my legs with a .44 Magnum hollow point bullet/gun.
My ex was trying to shoot himself and shot over four rounds inside the house in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, 15601.

I had 4 liters of blood — a total blood transfusion.

Numerous surgeries, denied my social security disability for 10 years.

Thank God I’m still here.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
