You may know my son’s story. For once, I have no problem repeating it for those who do not. I have a very good reason for it that I have been bursting to share!

In 2009 my son was 25… a good looking, successful young man with a fast car, nice apartment near the coast and a very promising career. That ended on July 4th when he was left for dead in a Bournemouth alley, stabbed through the brain in an unprovoked attack.

  2. Tweeted. There are so many strong people in this world that face things the rest of us can’t even imagine. It would be easier to handle yourself than to your child.

      1. Many are thinking the same of you Sue. My mom heart was so enraged on your behalf. I am glad that he is doing great. It is evident that the thug didn’t remove his perseverance.
