The impact of gun violence has a wide-reaching effect. It changes one’s life; there are unanswered questions, and pain and hurt for family and friends. It opens new wounds in the body. You ask yourself: Was there something that I could have done differently? You find yourself empty.

You ask yourself every day: What could have been if only …? Yes, gun violence has impacted my life.
