Orangeburg mother creates support group for mothers who lost their children to gun violence

ORANGEBURG, S.C. — Orangeburg resident Michelle Green is no stranger to grief. She lost two of her sons to gun violence. Now, she's cultivating a space for other mothers to grieve together.

“When it comes down to it, nobody truly gets it except for a mother who’s been through it," said Green.

Green says her eldest son Isaac was killed by gun violence in Columbia in 2006, and then her youngest son Carlton was killed nearly one decade later.
