I asked him if I could go to parkland with them because that was after Vegas, and she was like, no, Honey, you're not ready for it. This yet she's telling her story, and I'm listening to her and I'm going. Shanna showed Cindy the cell phone video. She unintentionally recorded of the shooting. And I'm watching the video, and I'm going this is triggering me. I can't imagine what she has really gone through. What was happening around? You people were going down right away. I could hear the bullets whizzing right past my head. You would just see them like jerk. And I don't know if I can say this. But you would see them just explode. The gunfire lasted more than ten minutes. Fifty eight people were killed. For weeks afterwards. Shanna says she was hardly able to leave her house sandy advise her to see a therapist who specializes in severe trauma after about four or five months of therapy. I was like a walnut neck cracked open. And I finally cried about it. And I called sandy. And I'm like, I cried I was all excited, and I said, I'm actually very happy. Now, you can begin to put things together and and create new and now she's doing incredible work. So this has been growing really ever since the shooting the work, Shannon, Caputo is doing started last fall after the borsch shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, which is just miles from her house.

In never saw his sister's dead bombing since Jessica's murder. Sandy's son Jordan has been harassed and threatened by a man who like many conspiracy theorists claims. There was no massacre in Aurora here days in lumber mother. It's hard to imagine. But similar harassment now happens to families almost every time. There's a mass shooting s the worst kind of harm. You can do to someone and you're a devastating parent. Become apparent becoming more devastated. Fourteen shooting at century theaters. After the massacre in Aurora, sandy and Lonnie who were gun owners themselves filed a lawsuit against companies that sold gear and amunition to their daughter's killer over the internet, the judge throughout the case and ordered them to pay more than two hundred thousand dollars to cover defendants legal fees contract with them consulting to declare bankruptcy. And now consult for gun control group to make ends meet. Right here. But they say they keep that were separate from their outreach to survivors. We don't ever bring up gun Tolago. He never bring up, politics or guns and don't advocate. We don't recruit. We don't do any of that stuff until somebody shows an interest. And we tell them, you know, she not ready yet. The course of their new lives has followed a roadmap of American tragedies. They started in new town. Then went to Isla vista San Bernardino, Orlando loss Vegas Sutherland springs.

He was in a classroom across the hall from Knicks when the shooting began their parents were nearby waiting for school to let out Alex call us and said mama in the back of an ambulance. I was hit in the back of the head. And in my mind, I didn't really worry about nNcholas 'cause there's three thousand five hundred that's cool one child shot. What's the odds of two of my kids being shot at and I took off to the hospital said met, you can wait for nNcholas and. Yeah. They waited for twelve hours before finally being told nNcholas was dead within days, a mutual friend connected them with sandy and Lonnie Phillips. And remember that first meeting. Oh, of course, of course, they had a houseful of people we felt a little bit like we were intruding on a very private moment, which we were. But for good reason, I I was a little skeptical in the beginning. And I'm thinking to myself, what do they want from us? Why are they here after speaking to them which to we lasted for three hours three hours that would be? Yeah. And they took the time just a year and when out here for him reason but ties because you're in a place. That's just not of this law life and can't imagine. When you open your house in the morning.

"Just the past two weeks. There have been three deaths by suicide people who in different ways survived mass shootings. Two were teenagers who lived through the massacre at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school in Florida last year. The third was the father of a six year old girl murdered at sandy hook elementary school in Connecticut in two thousand twelve sandy and Lonnie Phillips know firsthand that kind of grief their daughter was killed nearly seven years ago in a mass shooting since then they've made it their mission to help others navigate the public, and sometimes political aftermath these tragedies they travel the country hoping to build a network of survivors and offer victims and families kind of survival guide to grief preparing them for a future. Few can imagine your identity has been stripped from you by their its mother or daddy or father. Or sister, brother? I no longer have that title. I no longer have that relationship. And when it's violence like my cars was that takes a long time to recover from some people think that there's a timetable for Greece. Yeah. Yeah. The five stages of grief. Right.

Just don't know that especially going into it. You might find that what you have done for the last twenty years of your life or thirty years of your life has absolutely no meaning to you anymore. And that was certainly the case for us. It wasn't long after their daughter's murder that sandy Lonnie Phillips quit their jobs. They've gotten rid of most of their belongings and rented out their house. So they can travel around the country to mass shootings hoping to meet survivors and offer help. Scene of a mass shooting is not an easy place to come to can be like walking into a stranger's funeral. We don't know each other yet, but we do now but in grief strangers can quickly become family. You got a second mom here. We sold the Phillips's in Thousand Oaks, California, where twelve people were gunned down at a country music or last November. It is one of the latest stops on their herp breaking journey. Evan lost somebody close to comprehend it. Just days before they arrived here. They were in Pittsburgh, where eleven people were murdered at the tree of life synagogue is so interesting what you're doing. You're not trained, therapists. You're not counselors, and yet you're have upended your lives and reaching out in a very individual way to people at compassion. That's what it is. Not a mine, it's about compassion compassion. We get from those people too. It's not like it's a one way deal. It was in two thousand twelve that their daughter. Jessica Galli was murdered along with eleven others in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. She was twenty four and an aspiring sports reporter. Can you take me back to that? He s. The young man that was with her Brent was like a son test, and she decided that she wanted to taking to the Batman movie. And when the shooting happened. They stood up and. Never made it out. Both France arrived. He he was shot trying to save her. He went into paramedic mode immediately. Because that's what he does for living. And the phone rang who call you from inside the. And I could hear the screaming going on in the background. He said there's been a shooting. And I said are you? Okay. And he said, I think I've been shot twice. And I knew them that. Okay. Something's bad. And I said, where's Jesse? Let me said. I tried. And I said is she? Okay. And he said, I did my best I tried. And I said, oh, God Brent told me she's dead. And he said, I'm really sorry. I started screaming, and she was sliding down the wall screaming, and I grabbed her and pick her up to the couch, and she kept beyond just he's dead. It's been six years now almost seven and there's not a day that goes by that we don't still get upset and still cry. Brother's suicide and a lot of people say, you know, you're now part of group which you never wish you'd be an lifetime membership and the cost of the dues might as way way too high. Sandy is sixty eight Launay seventy five twenty one. John they've been living mostly on savings, social security and goodwill. I know you're on a deadline occasionally crashing with friends days doing they started a nonprofit organization. Call saviours empowered to offer advice in kinship in the wake of mass shootings. I get a couple of hours, but also to give families practical information like how to deal with media attention or how to get a body home for a funeral. It's Lonnie just checking in on their things that happen to the families of people who've been shot in a mass killing that do not happen to families of somebody who is died under different circumstances. Exactly. The worst part is finding out that the day or child has been killed that there are already websites that have popped up and Facebook pages that have popped up saying this is a false flag. And this didn't happen. Did you have people saying just go wasn't real? She's cry. Actor a real she wasn't there. He didn't lose it. Outer all the time. Negra song sisters dead Bobby since just because murder. Sandy, son Jordan has been harassed and threatened by a man who like many conspiracy theorists claims. There was no massacre in Aurora. Today's number mother. It's hard to imagine. But similar harassment now happens to families almost every time. There's a mass shooting Ness the worst count of harm. You can do to someone and you're devastated peren become apparent becoming more devastated. Shooting at century theaters. Up to the massacre in Aurora, sandy and Lonnie who were gun owners themselves filed a lawsuit against companies that sold gear and amunition to their daughter's killer over the internet, the judge throughout the case and ordered them to pay more than two hundred thousand dollars to cover defendants legal fees contract with them consulting to declare bankruptcy. And now consult for a gun control group to make ends meet. Right here. But they say they keep that were separate from their outreach to survivors. We don't ever bring up gun TULIO. You never bring up politics or guns advocate. We don't recruit. We don't do any of that stuff until somebody shows an interest, and we tell them, you know, you're not ready yet. The course of their new lives has followed a roadmap of American tragedies. They started in new town. Then went to Isla vista San Bernardino, Orlando loss Vegas Sutherland springs. Parkland Santa Fe, Pittsburgh and Thousand Oaks each massacre is different. But the look sandy and Lonnie see on the faces of those left behind is the same can't believe in the campaign. I want to believe it on Akot and Mitch warrants seventeen year old son nNcholas who had just turned a swimming scholarship to college was murdered with sixteen others in parkland, Florida last year, I expect the come home any day, Walter the house such a great kid Nick's younger brother, Alex who was grazed by a bullet doesn't talk much about what happened. He was in a classroom across the hall from Knicks when the shooting began their parents were nearby. Waiting for school to let out Alex called us and said mama in back of an ambulance. I was hitting the back of the head. And in my mind, I didn't really worry about nNcholas because there's three thousand five hundred that that school one child shot. What's the odds of chew of my kids being shot? And I took off to the hospital finesse admit, you can wait for nNcholas and. Yeah. They waited for twelve hours before finally being told nNcholas was dead within days, a mutual friend connected them with sandy and Lonnie Phillips. Remember that first meeting? Yeah. Oh, of course, of course, they had a houseful of people we felt a little bit like we were intruding on a very private moment, which we were. But for a good reason, I I was a little skeptical in the beginning. And I'm thinking to myself, what do they want from us? Why are they here after speak until them which to we lasted for three hours three hours, though? Yeah. And they took the time just a year, and when not here Fran reason Fien ties because you're in a place. That's just not of this normal life. Can can't imagine when you open house in the morning. You're just like why should I get up today? Why should I do that? And it's just so painful to feel this pain the whole day, and then to meet somebody who has been through this and six year layers, and they're getting out of sandy and actually see a way through potentially. Right. What are some of the things you kind of the list of things? You worn a grieving parent list is I know you don't wanna get out of bed right now. But you're gonna live through this in spite of it just know that it's going to take you a long time. That's number one. Number two, people are ripping you off right now as we're speaking there's probably a gofundme page somewhere and raising funds for the families and that money goes into their Bank account. You'll never see it. So be careful who you trust. So it's an introduction mass shooting grief one, oh, one to help them keep up the Phillips's or trying to create a net. Work of survivors who can quickly respond to mass shootings anywhere in the country. Volunteers like, Shannon, Caputo she met sandy and Lonnie in two thousand seventeen after surviving the massacre at a music festival in Las Vegas when I first met them. I asked him if I could go to parkland with them because that was after Vegas, and she was like, no, Honey, you're not ready for this yet. She's telling her story, and I'm listening to her and
