He was shot in the head so now he's blind and has a significant brain injury. In that split second we became just TWO of the more than 300 people shot every day in the US

I've worked every day since to protect others from what my family went through.

I lost the illusion of "someday." I know I really only have NOW - so "kicking the can down the road" is out. Also, I lost my fear. Look, I still shake when I give a speech and spiders make me squeal but fear of failing is gone.
