Many people have have untold stories, hidden emotions and excruciatingly pain as we patiently anticipate for better days that sometimes elude us. This story is narrated by Rebecca Benty, a nurse, humanist, philanthropist, content creator who only strives to motivate the broken hearted and downtrodden.
Several people have struggled to live the life we are living now, so it can be very wrong if people misunderstand us. Circumstances changed, tragedy happens and this is the way she has to live life. Jacqueline, the brave lady who until her tragedy had a comfortable life with her intimate family. At age 12, her home was assaulted by an unidentified assassin.
The whole family of five (5) individuals were murdered while she looked on. She had parents, siblings and other kin. Jacqueline’s experience were more tragic when her left eye was taken out while her arm was amputated and she subsequently gave up the ghost.
God being so good, she was brought back to under strange circumstances, yes she survived. To her disappointment, she discovered upon waking up that her left hand and eye were not there. Her only desire afterwards was for death to come and take her away. Able bodied humans are struggling day in day out, how do we expect a person with difficulty to survive.
