Charlotte native Sherrie Lawson survived the 2013 Navy Yard shooting in Washington, DC. Twelve people were killed and eight others were injured. Those traumatic moments left such an indelible mark, that she’s now on the front lines fighting the emotional and mental turmoil that accompanies a mass shooting. Most of us will perhaps never experience the incredibly frightening and harrowing moments of a mass shooting. We can imagine those moments. We can pontificate on the politics. And, we can even participate in mass shooting drills to provide the illusion of being able to survive a shooting massacre. But to actually live that horrible experience is something altogether different and uniquely exclusive to survivors. ‘COMMUNITY VOICES’ host, Ron Holland talked with Sherrie Lawson, Director of Development for the Rebels Project about surviving the deadly mass shooting in 2013 and the Rebel Project which helps survivors of similar violence.
