My earliest memory was of being a victim of child abuse. At 17 I ran and escaped from that environment into the Army. I went to war in Viet Nam. I celebrated my 18th, 19th and 20th birthdays there. When I returned, the Veterans Administration rated me as 100% disabled from that experience. Then using the GI Bill I went to college. When I graduated, I lied about being disabled to gain employment. I became a cop. During the next 3 decades I saw the good and the evil that humans do to each other literally from the cradle to the grave. I was a Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Elderly Abuse investigator and then I went to Homicide. I was part of a group that facilitated many in their walk to either life in prison or onto Florida s death row. During that time I had no belief in God. Then during a high speed vehicle pursuit, I fractured most of my spine. I experienced months of hospitals and rehab. When I was finally well, I did it again but much worse in a near fatal motorcycle crash. During my months of recovery, several Christian therapists that worked with me, helped me find my faith and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. When I finally walked out of the hospital, I started a Christian ministry dedicated to helping others who have suffered devastating injuries and crisis in their lives.
