When I look at this photo I get emotional. I felt I was on the edge of a cliff and death was just a few feet away. I have never been so scared in my life. I wasn’t scared to die as much as I was scared to not see my family anymore. To not be able to touch and hold them. To talk to them about their day. To see all of them grow and become everything that I knew that they could be. That scared me.
But I am grateful that God gave me another chance. Another chance to see how beautiful this world really is. You can look at all the negative stuff on social media and let it control you but I refuse to do that. I see the hope in all of us. I am not a perfect man. I have many flaws. But I am here and I am grateful for the second chance.
I am grateful to all of you that prayed for me or thought about me. I truly appreciate you.
Gina Gordon Lopez, thanks for keeping me by your side.
