FLOURISHING UNDER DISTRESS GIVING ENCOURAGEMENT

Derrick Fudge was enjoying a night out with his son, Dion Green, and other family members in Dayton’s Oregon District when he was shot outside of a bar. Derrick Fudge is one of eight victims that lost his life during the Dayton mass shooting of 2019.
