"Active Killer"  names a type of mass murder marked by rapidity, scale, randomness and suicide.

On our Final Day we helped teach one of the latest class of First Responders at Fight to Fight Charlotte. The Class included people of all ages,sizes and backgrounds. We had Teachers,Students and School Administrators plus a bunch of other citizens of Charlotte with the passion to make a difference..

On May 5,6,7 of 2016, Ryan Hoover and Daniel Shaw ran their first ever Instructor course for AKD.

I was proud to meet the qualifications to attend and be part of the team. As the only candidate from Canada, I had the deep pleasure of graduating as a certified instructor for the course and returning home with a new set of skills to pass forward.

...YOU are the First Responder.
