Bernice, took the her official Twitter handle named Be A King to state that she was a gun violence survivor and created a deep impression that portrayed hurt and pent-up emotional pain.
In her own words:
My father was assassinated via a gun. My paternal grandmother was shot and killed while sitting in church. I am a #GunViolence survivor. Gun violence, including state-sanctioned and white supremacy, fueled gun violence, has extinguished so many lights. #MomentsThatSurvive
