Coming from an inner city I've been no stranger to violence in my community. Unfortunately for many others who grow up in urban environments such as myself, violence is something that you begin to become desensitized to. However many members of our community are still living with the grief and trauma of losing loved ones to acts of violence to this day. As it stands my hometown of Bridgeport, CT already has 7 homicides to date and it's only the first day of the summer. This episode speaks to the experience of dealing with grief, PTSD, and survivors guilt as an individual growing up in an urban setting.
