In memory of Christopher Lynn Mcbath

Christopher Lynn Mcbath was my second son to be murdered, gunned down September 15, 2009.
As a parent, you never think of losing a child and having a child taken by senseless violence. My first son, Djuansay Dee Freeman, was stabbed on October 13, 2007. I knew after the death of my second son, I had to do something. I couldn’t save my sons’ lives, nor did I want another child to be murdered or mother to have to endure the pain. I became a volunteer and a voice for the voiceless with Moms Demand Action, and an Everytown Survivor, so that one might live.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
