None of us can control the circumstances we are born into. However, how we deal with our circumstances and the trials we encounter is the determining factor of our triumph or the reality of looming tragedies.

This memoir will take you through a whirlwind of emotions from the beginning to end. Most importantly, you will know that life is not what happens to you…. But how you MAKE LIFE happen for you!
Carol attempted to get up. However, she stumbled a few steps and then fell forward toward Bill. Instead of helping her, he backed away and watched her fall. When she hit the floor he yelled, “Trick get up!”
Carol’s bloody nose dripped down onto her lips, her vision was blurred in one eye and the other eye was swollen shut. She was mercilessly battered and weak. It was impossible for her to muster up the strength to stand even with help!
Bill realized Carol needed to go to hospital, and the thought of showing any remorse or concern for her angered him even more. So, Bill lugged Carol into his car like a bag of trash, and spewed obscenities at her the entire 15-minute drive. “Trick stop bleeding all over my seats, I knew I shoulda left you!”
When they arrived at the hospital, Bill didn’t escort Carol inside. Instead with the same violent demeanor, he hatefully threw her out of his car! Carol stumbled inside trying not to fall, but her strength betrayed her. Her pregnant and battered body fell to the ground, while bystanders looked at her in shock and disgust… After what seemed like an unending couple of minutes, Carol was assisted by hospital staff and rushed to the maternity ward.
