Date Of Injury: December 22, 2012

I am a burn survivor. On December 22nd, 2012 – just three days before Christmas, I suffered horrific third degree burns on the right side of my face and the upper right-hand side of my shoulder.

I believe this happened because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I can’t really remember much at all, but I do know who had done this to me. Still, I have no justice because I can’t really remember much of the incident because it just happened so quickly!

The one thing that I want my attacker to realize is that you can burn my skin but you can’t burn my soul! They may have burnt my face but me, as a person, they cannot hurt. I don’t hate the person who did this.

I am left with questions, and I would like to know why they did this to me. Whatever they tried to do, they failed because they actually made me into a stronger person!
