A PERSONAL STORY
This is a letter written for people who live in apathy and denial. This letter was written to a friend of mine in Texas back in the mid to late 90s, who used to teach self-defense, by one of his students and he had emailed it to me way back when.
It is a heavy letter and the truth behind it sinks heavily into my soul each time I read it. I cannot begin to imagine the pain that the writer must have felt, must still feel now, although it seeps through every written word.
It was not written for shock value, nor was it written to convince you to take our courses. It was written by a man who was in love with a woman who was savagely taken from him. It was written in hopes that this sort of thing would never happen again but the sad fact is... it did, hundreds if not thousands of times over since just as bad and in many cases, much worst.
It is something that happens in many third world countries daily today, right now, as you're reading this. It is something that should never happen, yet it does and so do other much more gruesome things.
I've always said, We are born, and we know for a fact we are going to die, no 2 ways about it.... what are YOU doing in between?
