After Losing My Son To Gun Violence, "I Am A Witness Prayer Does Work"


    My name is Markethia Hill Davis, and I am a mother of three beautiful kids .  I was affected by gun violence, when I lost my eldest son.


 On September 18, 2011 my son was shot down by an AK-47. He was an innocent bystander, and was shot in the back of the head, and left for dead.

       I  remember the night that I received the call around 2:35 A.M., to hear my mother tell me, my son, Man ( the name I called him) had been shot. I immediately got out of my bed, running trying to get to him.  On this date, we had planned to celebrate my youngest son's birthday, but instead we were mourning a brutal death, that left a big void in our hearts and lives. On September 19, was my birthday, but instead of celebrating, I was preparing to make funeral arrangements. 


      I went through a time when all I could do was cry. The crying led to depression and anxiety,  and I was then put on medication. I thought I was going to lose my mind, and I couldn't think for myself. I would try to stay busy, so that I could try to keep my mind off of it.

   After all that I went through, God kept me in his loving care, and He began to mold me, and give me a different outlook on losing my son. I am so thankful, that I'm not bitter or hold hate in my heart, against anyone for what happened to him.

   He will always live as long as I am here, because I hold him dear in my heart. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about my son.

    I was visiting my son grave site everyday, then, eventually it went to every other day, and to then every other week. I still visit it sometimes, and it took God to help me get where I am today. I want everyone that may read this to know, I am a witness that prayer does work.
