On December 30 my husband and I were sitting together watching the Eagles football game when the call came that would ultimately change our lives forever. Our son David was shot three times and he had died; the day before his 24th birthday. Do we yell or scream, which direction do we go, how do we stand up or sit down, who do we call, how do we tell David’s siblings, and what do we tell his grandparents? We had so many questions with no directions and clearly no answers. We were on a plane the next morning and landed in Fort Myers to bring our eldest son home. We visited his apartment where he was killed. Our birthday card that he received on December 30th was on his refrigerator. We came home a week later with our son to begin making funeral arrangements for a young man that had so much life to live. A year has passed and we still have no closure. We continue to work with police to find the person who murdered our son. Several months ago I had to opportunity to talk to Kim Book who is the Executive Director for Victims’ Voices Heard, Inc., a non-profit established in 2002 in an effort to help restore victims’ lives and end repeated violence in Delaware. Victims Voices Heard provides services to victims / survivors of crime as well as teaching victim empathy to incarcerated offenders in six correctional facilities in the state in an effort to reduce recidivism. www.victimsvoicesheard.org. My family wants to honor David’s life by working to help end the violence that took his life. We can think of no better way to do that then to hold an event each year in his memory and donate the proceeds to Victims Voices Heard to create positive alternatives for youths throughout the State of Delaware. On June 21, 2015 my family and Victims Voices Heard VVH will hold a 5K in memory of our son David; “A Voice for David” The David Lau Project, in the fight against gun violence and we are asking you to join us. I am very happy we connected and hope you find it in your heart to connect with our story and support the 5K in memory of our son David!
