Gus: A Story of Loss and Love
Syndicated from, May 09, 2019


There is a saying that when we know better, we do better. Such was the case for Gus Mojica, a former gang member. As a young teen, he did what others in his neighborhood were doing without seeing or knowing a better way to live. He recalls vividly the night that changed everything for him. After being in a gang for almost 20 years, he suffered a loss that showed him he had to change. What he has done with his life since then shows how healing deep wounds can lead to a life of meaning and love. The following short film shares his story.
