Saturday April 19, 2014 my son, family, friends, and myself celebrated life and the gift of a second chance at life that was given to my son. Two young adults walked into the camping site where my son and his friends were camping and shot my son, another boy, and seriously injured three other boys before the invasion took a deadly turn when one of the attackers was shot and the other attacker surrendered to comfort their dieing accomplice.
The two people that used gun violence to attack my son took many years for my son, his friends, family members, and myself to work through the physical pain, mental pain and trauma from the gun violence that my son experienced and resulted in causing my son to suffer a condition called post traumatic stress disorder that gave him flashbacks, nightmares, anger problems, and other side effects that hunted him on a daily basis for many years after the shooting.
