FROM THIS EPISODE

Lita Herron didn't always live in a war zone. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she bought a beautiful old house across the street from a park and a church. Her husband had a stable job at Lockheed Martin, and life was good. Until one day a bullet exploded through her stained glass window. And the shootings didn't stop. She became an activist, working to stop gang violence.
