Well greetings my friend, its been a long time, but I am back now, I finished my classes, and now I am an official college graduate, along way from being in the hospital finding out I was paralyzed from the waist down a few years ago.
In case you don't remember I wasa victim of a drive by shooting, and I decided from then on that I was going to speak out against gang violence, I want the world to see it is not only the gangs themselves that are affected, but its kids like me, who manage to get in their way.
I am one of the lucky ones, although I can no longer walk, I am alive, and I can use my voice to speak out against the dangers of gangs when some are forever silenced.
I am grateful to be here, grateful to be able to tell my story, to speak out against the violence of gangs. I believe it is a real problem, something that needs to be stopped.
I believe we need to fight so no one has to face what I had to face. I do not want others to face what I faced, when I found out I would never walk again, yes I got on with my life, but the violence has to stop and it has to stop now.
Well I am going to scoot on out of here, getting ready to go out with some friends.
To Be Continued...
