Since my 16 year-old innocent son, Blair Holt, was killed on May 10, 2007, I have become an advocate for gun control and stopping the violence and dangerous weapons getting into the hands of the mentally unstable and violent criminals and youth, thus promoting peace in our streets, at home, in our churches, our work-places, places of recreation and relaxation. I give talks about gun violence and peace.

Welcome to MyPeace. So sorry about your son Blair. I have a daughter Blake. Losing a child at any age is the most painful thing a human being can have to endure. And to an act of violence, something totally preventable... I cannot express my sadness for you, Blair and your entire family. Peace, keep passing it on.. Its for real. Becky
