THE STORY:

GUNS DON'T SHOOT PEOPLE AND PEOPLE WITHOUT GUNS ARE VERY UNLIKELY TO SHOOT ANYONE EITHER!!!  SO HELP ME IN THE EFFORT TO RAISE MONEY AND PROMOTE "FREEDOM FROM GUN VIOLENCE" THROUGH NYAGV.

On April 12, 2010, I lost my precious son Devon who fell victim to gun violence.  Devon was killed in his Harlem apartment, due to senseless gun violence. My precious Devon was only 28 years young. No mother expects to out live their children. And, no one has the right to take the life of another.  Period!!!

Since April 12, 2010 my life has forever changed. A part of me is missing & always feels void. Everyday I think about how much my grandson is missing without his daddy. It's nothing like a father teaching his son how to grow up and become a "real" man.  Absolutely no one, can replace that void. 

I strongly believe that if guns were not so easily accessible to purchase and be put in the hands of the wrong people, my son would still be alive & still with me today. I feel it is my duty to my son & all the mothers & fathers who have lost their sons & daughters to gun violence, that I do everything in my power to help get the information & resources out, to help educate our youth & communities about how we can all help in the effort to Stopping Gun Violence in our communities and the entire country. 

There is POWER in numbers!

TODAY, I HUMBLY ASK ALL MY FAMILY, FRIENDS, FRIENDS OF FRIENDS, COWORKERS, BUSINESS PARTNERS (EVERYONE) ETC. TO MAKE A DONATION IN HONOR OF MY PREIOUS DEVON AKA TRAIN - TO A CAUSE THAT TRULY TOUCHES MY HEART IN A VERY PROFOUND WAY.  LET US STAND UP TO HELP STOP GUN VIOLENCE IN THIS COUNTRY & OUR COMMUNITIES.  ANY SIZE DONATION IS WELCOME! YOU MAY GIVE A PERSONAL DONATION HERE OR YOU CAN START YOUR OWN TEAM IN EFFORTS TO HELP ME REACH MY GOAL OF 10,000 FOR A VERY IMPORTANT & SERIOUS CAUSE.  "NEW YORKERS AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE EDUCATION FUND"   

I TRULY APPRECIATE ANY SUPPORT.  THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!!!
