Gun violence is a crisis in the United States. From Sandy Hook to Las Vegas to Dayton to Uvalde and too many more, we mourn each loss of life. But, little is said about the survivors. What hap-pens to the people who witness such violence and survive it? How do school children deal with the aftermath of their classmates’ deaths? How does gun violence tax our health care system? Gun violence is far more deadly than many of us realize. Join us as we discuss these issues.
