Life after Shaun
On May 29, 2007 I was driving home from work early with my two boys in the back seat.My 9 yr old son was sitting directly behind me and my 6yr son was sitting directly behind the passenger seat. We were rear ended less than 5km from home. My car spun into on coming traffic. When we finally came to a stop my 9yr old asked "Dad where is Shaun?"
At that moment i realized my son had been ejected from the car and was dying less than 20 ft away from me. He died in my arms as his life exited his green eyes. Everything I knew ended that day. My marriage ended, my friends left and my only companion was depression and guilt. Anger consumed me. I felt God had made a mistake and I went on a take me mission. I lived recklessly. Carelessly. That was less than 4 years ago and I still have troubles sleeping, maintaining relationships and general living. I want to help others as I have forgiven the man who struck us. There has to be some good that can come from this. God only knows though.
