Triple amputee Bronson continues to inspire people with his testimony.

I guess I must be doing something right.

You see, whenever I go speak at different events, different places, people always gravitate towards me like flies to butter.  I guess it's my charming personality, huh?? LOL

Seriously, though, people come up to me, tell me how much they appreciate my coming to talk with them about what's happened to me.  I appreciate the support, the kind words, even the prayers.  It's like God's using me for some bigger purpose, and it makes me feel good inside.

To reintroduce myself to you, my name's Bronson. Bronson Charles Whitt.  I am a triple amputee.  I was involved in a horrific car accident (the other driver who hit me was drunk behind the wheel); they couldn't save three of my limbs.  I now use a motorized wheelchair, have only one good working limb (my left arm).  I now rely on others to care for me when I can't do something.

Trying to do things with just one hand is incredibly difficult.  It takes me a very long time to get tasks completed; yet I have a dogged determined spirit that refuses to give up; I just keep trying, pressing on.

I live in Nashville, Tennessee, where I work at a factory.  It's not like my former job as a high-powered attourney (it's harder to pay my bills on time, harder to stay on top); however, I know my God's going to provide, and He's never failed me yet.  Somehow, somewhere, whenever I'm at my lowest point, God's there, and He bails me out, each and every time.

I thank God for my friends who have rallied around me.  They come help me with different things when life gets to be too overwhelming, and I have a very loving, caring church family who never fail to lift me up in prayer.  I go to a spirit-filled, Bible-believing church, Christ Community Assembly of God, every Sunday, and I just love it there.

I would like to go to college, earn a degree in communications.  I think I would do well in public speaking, becoming a mentor to other severely physically handicapped individuals, give them a sense of hope, purpose, show them that they can achieve great things in life if they're given the opportunity to do so.  Yeah, I think I can do that.  In fact, I know I can!

Well, I am going to go:  my arm feels like it's about to become unattached from my body; feels like it's going to fall off.  OW! LOL  I will write in here again; it doesn't take long for my arm to weird out whenever I'm writing; it's all so time-consuming!  Very frustrating!  Until then, this is Bronson signing out of here; besides, I'm getting sleepy.  Too early for me to be up, anyway! LOL  Take care and may God bless you good!

~Bronson Charles Whitt. :)

Then we take all for granted, could we survive if we lost our limbs, I don't want to think of it. Thank you for letting your words show us how lucky we are.

I agree with Karla, a lawyer could still be a lawyer although hes lost three limbs, there is a story, a true story of a young woman, who lost three limbs, and graduted from Medical school her name, her name is Kellie Lim and her story is incredible

Very well written story Karen, kind of sad though but mnakes one appreciate being whole with all their limbs and mind :-)
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 7/18/2008
A lawyer doesn't need his limbs to talk - why couldn't he go back to being one? The skill is in the knowledge he retained - not in legs or arms. :) Still, a very inspiring/inspired write - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
