Andy and I got our start with PPGV 3 years ago after Tucson and Gabby Giffords shooting. We had tried after Virginia Tech and when the mayor rebuffed us we stopped. 32 deaths there got our attention and then Gabby made us more determined.
Gabby has a great editorial in the New York Times about her determination to make our country safer. Please read it and watch the video of her sky dive.
My personal story is that I am 2 years from Ampullary or Pancreatic Cancer and look like a cure. I have to find a way to return my thanks. This physician organization and its purpose is it. I have lost a beautiful teenager to death and another almost teen to live in prison, now 30 years, due to gun violence.
And you? I hope you will join us and work even harder in 2014 for the prevention of gun violence. See our website, ppgv.org to become more active.
