Man, could you & I sit and talk a while.The man that invaded our home was a career criminal. The man that invaded your home, was on his way to
becoming the same thing. I second guessed my actions that night for a long time.
A deputy that I am still friendly with from that night told me a long time ago, just what some of you all said. I probally saved more than just me &
my wife, that I probally saved others also, future victims he called it.
You sir probally did the same thing. Dark, knife, hoodie,breaking & entering, how could you have known who it was? what if you did not react? What
if's will drive you insane. You & I are in a club we both don't want to be in.
The club of being forced to take some one else's life. Being forced to decide in the blink of an eye, do I pull the trigger or no. I have no words for
you other than, What were you supposed to do, when put in that situation? You protected you & yours.
I later found out from the prosecuter of the second man, that we had been targeted for this home invasion. And that it was supposed to happen the
weekend prior. The scary part is, I was out of state the weekend prior. My wife was home alone.
I worry no more of her being alone. She has learned to shoot, all the firearms in our home. She carries, everywhere she goes. She 's a better shot
than me!!. We are not alone you & I. Theirs others like us. Who were forced to decide in a split second on a life threatening situation. I hope for
the rest of our lives we never have to face that again. But I also feel if we do. We'll know exactly what to do. Good luck man, If you want to talk
just private mail me. If I can help you out I will.
