What would you do if you received terrible news? How would you make it through many physically, emotionally, and mentally pain-filled nights? How would you handle facing a death sentence, especially when you had committed no crime? The pen can be mightier than the sword. Within these pages appear the words of a teenager who faced the dilemmas mentioned above. Tommy was born with severe hemophilia (blood not clotting) and at age eleven learned that the blood supply upon which he had depended during his entire life was contaminated with the AIDS virus. Devastating news brings forth a gambit of emotions that cloud rational thought. Tommy opens his heart and soul through his writings which move from hopelessness to hope, from despair to new beginnings, from notes of suicide to steely resolve, and from darkness to light. We all will or have faced agonizing events in our lives. The question is will we face them, run for cover, or just give up. Tommy died from complications of the AIDS virus just before his 28th birthday, but his determination, though wavering at times, never faltered. Let his words speak to your heart.
