~ I knew I could kill ~

Most know me as a semi-passive person that wants us all to get along (Per Rodney King).

I am that person. And I'm not.

When a man attacked me in the gym shower when I was six months pregnant with my first child, I knew I could...and would...kill.

I realized then that although I didn't care all that much about my life, I'd kill for my child's life.

The attacker lived. My son lived. I lived.

But I can kill.

What a terrifying ordeal you went through. You're a survivor, a woman, a mother. You have amazing inner strength and power and you used it to save your baby and yourself. Damn right you can kill!.
