Children, Trauma and the Long-Term Effects

Can we do anything about it?

Earlier this month, 42-year-old Sedrick Miller was shot to death in Northeast DC.  But he was not alone.  He was holding a car seat with one of his children in it.  He was also holding the hand of his five year old.  The children were not hurt.  Or were they? We take a look at how traumatic events witnessed by the very young impact them now and much later in life.  Can we do anything about it?
