On June 27, 2012 my fourteen-year-old son, Akeal Christopher, was shot in the back of his head as he was walking home after attending a high school graduation party. He survived for fourteen days but died on what would have been his fifteenth birthday: July 10, 2012. My son never got the opportunity to experience life because his life was taken away by someone with an illegal gun. My boys and I miss him every single day. I miss his beautiful smile and his kind heart. I miss the way he loved his younger brothers. Senseless gun violence destroyed my family and I now honor my son’s life by fighting to put an end to the one thing that has caused me so much pain.

    I feel for all the families of these children. I will do whatever I can to help end gun violence in America.
