I have stared death in the face one time too many, but God still provided a way for me to escape. I used to wonder why I never got hit by the bullets that were fired at me by enemies. I didn't realize how close I came to dying or taking someone else's life. As a hustler and a gangster, I tried my best to take a life. I wanted to do whatever it took to earn my stripes but when the opportunity presented itself, I believe God stepped in. No matter how many shots I fired, no one ever got killed. I wanted to tell my story, in hopes of inspiring or shaping/changing the course of someone else's life. I can guarantee that if I were to commit a big crime, the world would definitely know about it. It would make the 6: 00 p.m. and the 10: 00 p.m news, maybe even Dateline or 60 Minutes. With those possibilities, I felt it was necessary that the world knew that I was given another chance at life.
