I look at it this way when life hands you lemons you can make lemondade or chose to look at how sour life is. I choose to look at life as a blessing, the lemons just a tool to make Lemonade with.
Perhaps a surprising attitude for a teenager, especially a teenager who has been through what i have been through,
An innocent victim in a drive by.
I was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Never had any affilation with games, always thought they were stupid and dangerous.
I was a cheerleader before I was shot, I was fifteen at the time, only two years ago in many ways it seems like a life time ago. But I learned early on I did not want to dwell on what happened to me.
God had me here for a reason, I was going to do my best to live my life. Even if it meant adjusting to life in a wheelchair.
On a postive note I never have to worry about finding a place to sit lol!
Seriously though I believe God wants to use me in a real way, and he already is, I am already helping kids who are in wheelchairs like me, some have never been able to walk others victims of tragedies, but regardless I want to reach out to them.
I plan on continuing voluneteering after I graduate highschool, in just a few short months, and go on to college!!!
Others are going to see that what happened to me, the bullet that hit my spine does not have to define me.
This isn't the last you heard from me.
