Hello we were victims of this horrible racial terrorist attack Over the weekend in Charlottesville Virginia. My name is Mahtab Jamalreza I'm 22 and I live in Charlottesville Va. While sitting in the van with my god mother Lizete Short age 43 of Charlottesville Virginia my 10 year old God sister and my 4 year old daughter, just as my godmother stepped out of the van we were rammed by this this white supremacist terrorist as he used his vehicle as a weapon and plowed into a group of people and into the back of us. My Godmother was standing in front of the van when the impact occurred, she was thrown into the hood of the van then smashing into the windshield ultimately falling to the ground unconscious. The picture I posted is of my God mother hanging on her van for dear life, the most terrifying experience of our lives. My young daughter and god sister had to witness this as well sending them into the shock, panic, fear and as you can imagine Uncontrollable sorrow.. seeing our loved one laying there alone side other innocent people bleeding and traumatized was the worst site and feeling ever!!! We all were sent to the hospital my mother is lucky to be alive although we all had several injuries. My God out, any and everything is appreciated. It saddens me how it came to this people lost their lives people are severely injured. We all as a community are devastated at the events that occurred over the weekend. I just hope we can all come together and rebuild and bring back the love and happiness of this great city. Thanks so much for your time.
