What does being a peacemaker mean to you?
Being a peacemaker to me means many things but at its core I hope to honor and walk in the values of one of my greatest friends Jack Shockley. He was a true peacemaker. He would give his shirt off his back to anyone, listen to anyone who needed someone to talk to, make all of us laugh; he was the glue in our circle of friends. Jack saw the best in people in this world, a peacemaker throughout all of his life. I hope to continue to honor him by living these values of peacemaking.
What impact do you hope the Jack Shockley Warriors for Peace will have in the community?
I hope that our organization can spread love, light, hope, faith and peace throughout the great city of Indianapolis that Jack loved. I hope we can contribute to ending gun violence, by changing one life at a time, ultimately creating a ripple effect in our community.
