"It was just before Thanksgiving when my son put a shotgun under his chin and pulled the trigger. He survived, but the blast obliterated his face. As I watched him struggle back to physical and... More > mental health, I wrote what I saw and felt in my journals. This book came from those journals and from my son's memories, which he shared with me. I freely admit that this book is written from our point of view and colored by our emotions. It was not written coldly and objectively, as a reporter would have written it, but from a mother's heart. My hope is that our story might spare someone from suffering through the same torment we experienced. My family has found that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and there can be a happy ending to even the most tragic story."< Less
