Lucia Kay McBath Chats "Standing Our Ground: The Triumph of Faith Over Gun Violence - A Mother's Sto
"Standing Our Ground: The Triumph of Faith Over Gun Violence" is Lucia Kay McBath McBath’s memoir of raising, loving and losing her son to gun violence, and the story of how she transformed her pain into activism. After seventeen-year-old Jordan Davis was shot by a man who thought the music playing on his car stereo was too loud, the nation grieved yet again for the unnecessary loss of life. Here, McBath goes beyond the timeline and the assailant’s defense—Stand Your Ground—to present an emotional account of her fervent fight for justice, and her awakening to a cause that will drive the rest of her days. But more than McBath’s story or that of her son, "Standing Our Ground" keenly observes the social and political evolution of America’s gun culture.
