Imagine waking from
a three-month coma
unable to move a single muscle after being shot three months earlier, a victim of a shooting spree that has become internationally known as the
Thanksgiving Day Massacre.
Imagine lying in a hospital bed, a week into recovery, as a priest enters the ICU breaking the devastating news that your wife was murdered in the massacre. Unable to talk or communicate, you must face your new reality and deal with the overwhelming grief inside your own mind.
Imagine living and grieving each day, and like a baby, needing to relearn how to speak, walk, tie a shoe, brush your teeth, write . . . everything.
I lived it. I survived it through strength from God, but it was up to me to get myself out of bed each day and face the world.
“Patrick's transparency in sharing his struggle with reconciling tragedy and faith in a loving God make his story real and accessible to us. He helps us understand that universal question: If God is all loving, then why is there suffering?"
Rev. Steve Mitchell, National Director – Alpha USA
