Chris Gilman of Bonney Lake, Washington, is one of them. She was shot in the back at the Route 91 Harvest Festival while she was helping a friend who had also been shot. Gilman’s wife and two off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies saved her life.
Now, every time Gilman leaves home, she has to fight the urge to turn around and check that someone isn’t about to shoot her.
Like other survivors of the Oct. 1, 2017, shooting that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds of others, Gilman has had to get used to living with fear.
And like the others, Gilman is fighting to find her new normal.
