Around the time of the second anniversary of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, I had the honor of interviewing a few of the teachers and listening to their memories. The love for their students, their dedication, and their strength was palpable and overwhelming.

The ripple effect of gun violence - and both the obvious and not-so obvious impact it has on a family - is a main focus of this project. When Yvonne shared her story, my eyes were opened to something I never would've thought of on my own.
