Stephen Barton on the Campbell Conversations

Mar 4, 2013

Stephen Barton was a top honors student at Syracuse University—he delivered the student commencement address at the university’s graduation exercise last May. He had won a prestigious Fulbright grant to teach English in Russia, but before he could go, he was shot by James Holmes in the Aurora, Colorado movie theater on July 20th. The experience led him to join the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

In this edition of the Campbell Conversations, Stephen talks about the shooting, his recovery, and how it has affected his life.
