Sonia Rogers

I’m a mother in Newark, New Jersey, I was blessed with three boys … and two daughters. In 2011, my life changed. My oldest son was shot and fought for three weeks until he couldn’t and I had to remove him from the respirator. Six months later, my second oldest son was shot and killed. I was numb … to try and find sanity or peace … for the moment it happened to me again … this time it killed me too. My baby, my last son, shot and killed three days after Christmas of 2015 … This is how gun violence has forever affected my life … The mother of the Rogers Boys #212120, in the order they were born, they were stripped from me … Anthony Antoine Tyquan
