My son was murdered in a workplace shooting on February 15, 2019, on his very first day of an internship.
He was set to graduate from college in May and follow his dreams, starting the next chapter in his life. He never was able to. His murderer, a disgruntled employee who was getting terminated, never should have been able to own a gun. But he did own a gun. My son’s bright future was senselessly taken from him. I will never see him get married. I will never see him purchase his first home. I will never see my grandchildren. I will never be able to celebrate his successes or mourn his failures with him because someone had a gun who should have never owned a gun. I will proudly wear orange in memory of Trevor and all other victims of gun violence.
