“I was stalked and then attacked by my ex after he came into my home to kill me on Feb 25, 2011. He burst inside with a gun pointed at me and another at my 14-year-old daughter and friend. About 30 cops showed up, but they refused to come inside, instead choosing to break out windows to get a shot at him.
During the chaos, I dropped to my knees and began saying the Lord’s Prayer. I had given up and believed I would die, but I heard a voice say ‘Get up. You will live, but you must figure out how to survive.’ Thanks to this power and presence, I was able to fight my ex off. Despite being shot twice and beaten to a pulp by a man who outweighed me by 120 pounds, I was able to get to my safe and retrieve my own weapon. A gunfight ensued which resulted in my ex finally falling after I shot him multiple times in self defense.
Witnesses told the detective my ex’s eyes were black and his face was distorted during the attack. I told the detective the same. We all saw the same thing, even though we didn’t have a chance to compare stories as I went straight to the ER after the incident.
