I am a survivor. My father was killed in the line of duty when I was two years old. That traumatic event has shaped every day of my life to date. I will share what I have done over the years to process and heal from that trauma. I will discuss the difficulties and the re-traumatization I feel every time my father's killer is up for parole. I will also touch on the pain I have felt in the current anti-police climate.
