The day I turned nine years old is the day I`ll never forget. That day is one of those days that I will always regret.

Being in so much pain and expected to fight…That ain`t right.
I went to jail when I was nine years old. The reason for that is a story that should never be told.
On that day I was beaten so badly. But right after it was over, I was expected to stand up and fight for the lives of my family.
Having to turn all of your pain into strength to protect your own is so painful…Because on that day I failed and having to tell my brothers that…it really made me feel dreadful.
To kill a man that is trying to kill your own is a hard cross to bear. I may have defeated him but I still lost because when I look to see my mother and sister they won`t be there.
I did a year in a half for protecting my own, only to find myself sitting in a jail cell and left to rot all alone.
I fight everyday trying to keep my family alive. But every time I fight I feel like I`m dying inside.
