It’s not over when the bullets stop flying, when the blood has been hosed away, when the crime-scene tape comes down. It’s not over when you turn the page after reading about drive-by shootings.
“Speaking of Miami: Forget what you think you know about gun violence,” will explore another side of this dire issue from the perspective of those most affected by gun violence.
