My name is Sami Rahamim, I am 17 years old from Minneapolis Minnesota. My dad was 61, his name was Reuven Rahamim, and he was a small business owner. My dad was funny often, if I really just wasn’t in the mood for it, he would still, you know try to make a joke and lighten the mood. He was really a upstanding guy who genuinely wanted to help people.

Hi Sami, this is Abba, returning you the call, I see I missed the call.
Thursday, September 27, 2012, I saw a tweet on my phone that there had been a shooting in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood.

It’s the very latest on the story at Minnesota, a deadly workplace shooting at a sign company, several people including the gunmen were killed, others remain in critical condition at this hour.
So, I actually took that tweet and I sent it to my dad’s phone. I said, you know, hey be careful. What I didn’t know at the time was that this text would go unanswered.
This tragedy has hit the normally quite community very hard.
They found four people who were shot dead.
In a wonderful neighborhood, and a wonderful business, we have had a horrible tragedy.

Among the victims, reportedly the company’s owner, Reuven Rahamim.
Those will be words that I’ll never forget.
[President Barack Obama]
Now, is the time for action. We’re not going to wait until the next Newtown, or the next Aurora. We are not going to wait until after we lose more innocent Americans on street corners all across the country. We’re not going to wait until somebody else’s father or son are murdered.

I was extremely proud when the President announced that gun violence prevention was going to be something that he was going to work to fix. I think the time is now, we’ve lost enough friends and family members and fellow Americans. I think we can all kind of look ourselves in the mirror and say that enough is enough, and that it’s – it’s time to do something about this.
Whether gun violence enters your life in a mass shooting or in a single victim murder, the pain is no greater or no less. We’re here with Mayors Against Illegal Guns in DC for a survivor lobbying day. Mayors Against Illegal Guns has phoned in over a 120 people including myself.
We’re going to be real busy over on Capitol Hill visiting members of Congress who we believe really need to see the faces of those who have been personally touched by gun violence, so that they can understand that this is a real issue. This is something that we can’t allow to go on any longer in our homes, in our communities, in our workplaces. Most important thing we need to demand from our legislators is action.
“We are here to tell our legislators that enough is enough.”
“Enough is enough.”
The President said to me that you can’t change the past Sami, but you can change the future. And it was just you know a reminder that my work with gun violence prevention is not going to bring my dad back to life, but it could prevent, another family, another child from going through what I am going through, and I think that’s a great way to honor my dad.
“The time is now, we are going to stand up, we are here, we are fighting.”
My family deserves a vote, we all deserve a vote.
