26 Died, so I could Live again…

Because I know, that my time is borrowed now… It is so important that I acknowledge the souls that gave me back my life..

I do not know their names, and I do not know their lives…

I do know, that on the morning of November 5, 2017 a young man, kicked out of the Air Force and set on a path of revenge and mental illness… decided these souls should leave our earth… that was in Sutherland Springs, Texas….

He killed men, women and children that fateful day… I could not take my eyes off the news… 

Like a neon sign flashing in the night… two words kept coming to mind… Air Force and Texas….

On November 7th 2017… I sat in my chair and told Mike I have a story to tell and I started talking about a time I remembered in Big Springs, Texas at Webb Air Force base…

As I described that night Freda and Don got into the fight that killed Margie, I screamed in pain and jumped from my chair, because I remembered the night I died…

the head trauma would leave me with a stroke and life threatening fistula… I was only 13 years old…

No one ever told me of that moment in time… Not Freda, when I asked, not Don, when I asked, not Peggy, when I asked and not Larry, when I asked… mother, father, brother & sister… no one talking of the night Margie died….

This is not about them… this is about the 26 souls that died November 5, 2017 in Sutherland Springs, Texas…

Because of them… I remembered… and I can never thank them for what they gave back to me… but If all goes well, my book will be dedicated to their lives that gave me so much… because, I Remember….
