The Rev. Kim Odom was surprised when her visit to the White House Tuesday with a group of gun control advocates included an unscheduled meeting with Michelle Obama. She was also surprised at her own reaction to her conversation with the Obama.
As she always does, Odom had carried with her a picture of her son Steven, who was murdered in Dorchester in 2007. Steven was just 13, walking home from playing basketball, 20 minutes before his curfew, when he was shot.
