Is being angry and bitter going to chage the facts?
Is hating the person who did this going to give me the use of my legs back?
No so I forgive.
I am only sevneteen, but I have been through alot in the past couple of years.
I was a victim of a school bully who took his acts to the criminal.
She shot me, no rhyme, no reason, she just shot me.
I never found out why.
Maybe I never will, but I am going to educate others to the best of my ability.
I am going to share my story.
My name is Aerial.
Like Little Mermaid LOL!
I am seventeen, I love to read, I love to write, and I use to run cross country, now I can not walk, but I can tell my story.
And i still take parts in sports, I just happen to do it sitting down.
I guess I can never complain about not having a seat LOL!!!
I have learned in the last couple of years, to look at the positve even when everything seems negative.
I made a promise to myself I was not going to come bitter over what someone did to me. It's not going to change the fact, but maybe I can make a difference.
Maybe I can show people that they can make good choices, and they can live for the Lord.
That's another thing that has allowed me to have the courage (if you want to call it that) I have. its my faith in the Lord. I am a Christian, gave my heart to the Lord, when I was eleven, four years before I was shot.
I believe that helped me.
To Be Continued
