On January 15, 2017, my son Andrew V. Zachary became the 14th murder victim in Baltimore City, he was only 23 years old. Not only was he my first-born child, he was a husband, a father and also a Marine, honorably discharged. He was able to survive combat overseas, but could not survive the streets of Baltimore City. Say his name, Andrew Zachary.
I now dedicate my life to learning how to recycle the pain, and my hope is to help others do the same.
