The bullet screamed past my head, I heard the wind splitting as it barely missed my head.
I was lucky, the bullet came from a rifle owned by my mother. The shots were fired by a soon to be stepfather. In a small town where futures are uncertain and home lives are often unique to say the least, my life was forever changed by the meeting of the man who would serve as my first hero.
My hero came to me in the form of attorney Frank Decker Cady told me that it would be alright, and that I had nothing to fear, at the time I wouldn’t have believed him, but the way he said it made me trust him.
My uncertain future was forever changed because of this mere mortal man who morphed that day into a larger than life pillar of truth justice and the American way.
