It’s a sad story. When my father was shot. I was there. I was crying, I will never forget that.

What happened?
I don’t know what happened, two people came and shot my dad. I don’t know what happened. I didn’t know what was happening at the time. Maybe there was a grudge.

How old were you?
I was 10, it was in 1998.

Did they ever catch anyone?
No, not even today.

What was your dad like?
He was a cool guy. He loved kids. He was a hard worker.

How has this shaped you and the way you live your life?
I am trying to forget, but I can’t. I didn’t even go to a counselor. My mother was there for me.

Anything you want to add?
I have advise for people. Everything happens for a reason. Live in peace.
