This boys story reached into my heart and was able to leave an imprint that I will remember for life. He told his story with intense emotions, with such detail I felt like I was there. I could only watch her torture him, but I wanted to tear her to shreds. Make her haft to personally experience every evil willed deed she did to him. But the man he became shamed me for wishing vengeance on her. If he could survive a a real live horror story, then grow into the person he became. Loving, God fearing Christian, not consumed with hate, a perfect example of the saying " What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. ". I doubt that there's not even one person that has not heard that saying. When we think our life is the worse and try to give up by seeking death, that is one of the most popular words of encouragement that whoever concerned would say to lift the spirits and give hope to whoever is in need. I've been told these words countless times. I understand the words and meaning but I don't think I've ever been able to see myself gaining strength from what didn't kill me. But I can see this man only became stronger. The book will inspire its readers, remind you no matter how dark it is or alone you feel, there's always hope, and faith for anyone that needs it and believes Good will always be there and will save us from evil. God Bless this man for sharing his lifes story with us!
