Concert Across America  Peekskill

On Sunday September 25, there will be a series of concerts across the USA to remember the victims of gun violence, and to help push to reduce the number of future gun victims. More information about this event and its national organizers can be found here: http://concertacrossamerica.org/

In Peekskill, the featured artist will be Matthew Gross. He was shot in the head atop the Empire State Building in 1997. Miraculously, he survived. And while changed forever, Matthew is still an amazing performer. The following links (a NY Times article and video segment from CBS News) tell his story:
