You'll often hear the news of young people tragically dying from gun violence. But what about those who live?

This week on Florida Matters we're listening to excerpts of the series Young Survivors: The Unspoken Trauma of Gun Violence from WLRN in Miami. It explores what happens to kids and teens who survive gun violence.

In this preview, Florida Matters host Robin Sussingham talks with reporter Nadege Green about the series.
