Rated "G" by the Author.

I was shot, just a year ago, and now I use a wheelchair, but please don't feel you need to pity me.

I am going to college on scholarship, the first in my family to do so.

 


 


 


 


I could easily be dead.


But I am alive, and that is a miracle.


I was shot, just a year ago, and now I use a wheelchair, but please don't feel you need to pity me.


I am going to college on scholarship, the first in my family to do so.


I am a born again Christian, I gave my heart to Jesus, while I was in the hospital.  It gave me little time to feel sorry for myself, but that's not my style anyway.  I like to looka t the glass half full instead of half empty.


If I told you I never struggled I would be lying to you, but my struggles make me stronger I understand that now.  I understand alot of things now.


I've forgiven the boys who shot me, they we just that boys, thinking they were going to make a name for themselves by gang banging.


When I got out of the hospital I went to the Juvenile hall to visit them, and told everyone what had happened to me, I also told everyone that I held no anger against those boys, they were doing what they had watched so many before them do.


Killing and shooting.


I have written them and they write me as well, they have apologized and asked for my forgiveness, but as I said I forgave them early on,.   I pray for them just as if they were my brothers, and they have promised not to gang bang anymore.


I pray they don't.


I am not angry at them, but angry at the lack of people in their lives who don't tell them any better.  Angry at a society that finds answers in guns and drugs.


I am glad that is one path I never fell down, although I certainly could have, but I knew better, and now I know even more, I am in this wheelchair because of them, but don't pity me.  I don't need that, just listen to my story, and don't buy into what the gangs will try and sale you. 


Well I have classes now, I will write more again soon.

Carah Winchester is a brave young lady, and she is a perfect example of how a Christian should live their life: forgive those who hurt them, and witness to them about Christ. Excellent story; very well penned! More from Carah please!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
