I have moved on with my life, its been a year now since I was shot, but in that time I have graduated highschool and gone onto college. My family is proud, I am also active in our churches youth ministry, I know how important our youth are, and we need to show them that there are better ways.

 


 


 


 


I choose not to be bitter over the fact that those gang bangers shot me and now I sit in this chair, but often people tend to think that because I choose not to be bitter I am in denial.


Don't worry I am not in denial.  I have just chosen to live my life, and to forgive those boys.


Forgiveness is something I feel is necessary, it has helped me to not let the hurt eat me up, I refuse to do that.

I guess I understand some ways, because I am still a youth myself, barely eighteen a child in some peoples eyes, but I am more than a child, I am a child of God.


Well I have church in the morning so I am going to call it a night for now, but I am not done telling my story.


Carah Winchester...

Carah sounds like quite a determined young woman of God. Good for her; she just may end up leading some people to Christ! She's also learned how to forgive, which will help her in the long run. Very well penned; love these upbeat stories! Keep these coming! BRAVA!

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