GROWING UP AROUND DEATH


17 year old male


Growing up in Alabama Village was hard because I was seeing guns, dope, drug dealers and other bad things.


Five years ago my grandma died. Last year my grandpa died. A few months later my mama died. Two months later my sister got hit. Her baby died. The other night a man got shot in front of my house and he died.


My family thought I would be the next to die or get locked up but I came to a place called Light of the Village. And over time I found Christ and heard the he had also died. But he died for me. Jesus came into my heart and changed my heart.


Today I am a Christian and my family looks up to me.
