ABOUT THE BOOK:
At any given moment gun violence has claimed the lives of innocent people. Whether it be a massacre or a single shooting, they are all devastating losses due to illegal gun posession. Contained within the pages of this book, are inspirational accounts of survival, advocacy, and action shared by those who were suddenly affected by the loss of a loved one in hopes to heal themselves, other survivors, our society, and to implement sensible gun legislation for a better future. These are their stories. They are all true stories written about and by people from various parts of our country whose lives were impacted and changed forever due to the accessibility of guns.

Her activism prompted her to participate in marches and rallies in support of the civil rights movement and to protest the war in Vietnam.
