  • (rope snaps)
  • 00:00:37.267 --> 00:00:39.035

  • I was sure about life
  • 00:00:43.439 --> 00:00:44.874

  • I have all of these things,

  • and suddenly they're losingtheir value to me.
  • 00:01:03.359 --> 00:01:05.962
  • Sometimes you don't knowhow valuable something is
  • 00:01:07.096 --> 00:01:09.999
  • until it's gone.
  • 00:01:09.999 --> 00:01:11.367
  • (Klock) I was scared,
  • 00:01:12.435 --> 00:01:14.537
  • I didn't know how badit was gonna get.
  • 00:01:14.537 --> 00:01:16.506
  • (Graham) The Bible says
  • 00:01:18.007 --> 00:01:19.075
  • "What should it profit a manif he should gain...
  • 00:01:19.075 --> 00:01:21.077
  • "the whole world,and lose his own soul?"
  • 00:01:21.077 --> 00:01:24.280
  • 00:01:29.485 --> 00:01:35.458
  • (Outing)You can spend six-ninety-nine
  • 00:01:50.173 --> 00:01:51.874
  • and get yourselfa good juicy burger.
  • 00:01:51.874 --> 00:01:54.277
  • Get you some friesand some onion rings.
  • 00:01:54.277 --> 00:01:56.446
  • And that'll be a pieceof heaven.
  • 00:01:56.446 --> 00:01:58.548
  • Come to Mark's Outingand eat
  • 00:01:59.916 --> 00:02:01.317
  • our burger,and if you don't like it,
  • 00:02:01.317 --> 00:02:02.752
  • I'll give youall your money back
  • 00:02:02.752 --> 00:02:03.953
  • if it ain't the best burgeryou ever ate.
  • 00:02:03.953 --> 00:02:05.488
  • You'll often see me sometimes
  • 00:02:09.292 --> 00:02:10.693
  • when it really gets busy
  • 00:02:10.693 --> 00:02:12.128
  • rushing to the back,throwing on an apron
  • 00:02:12.128 --> 00:02:13.896
  • just beginning to
  • 00:02:13.896 --> 00:02:14.831
  • move fast,
  • 00:02:14.831 --> 00:02:15.698
  • talk fast;it's just exciting.
  • 00:02:15.698 --> 00:02:17.467
  • But when I look back
  • 00:02:17.467 --> 00:02:19.369
  • on my life,
  • 00:02:19.369 --> 00:02:20.270
  • you know, I've had enemiesin my life,
  • 00:02:20.270 --> 00:02:22.272
  • a lot of enemies,
  • 00:02:22.272 --> 00:02:23.273
  • and it really, really gotway out there.
  • 00:02:23.273 --> 00:02:26.109
  • I've done things thatI'm ashamed to even share.
  • 00:02:26.109 --> 00:02:28.745
  • It'd be a club brawl,
  • 00:02:34.751 --> 00:02:37.487
  • it'd be a fight.
  • 00:02:37.487 --> 00:02:38.721
  • It'd be a shootout.
  • 00:02:38.721 --> 00:02:39.956
  • Whatever it took--
  • 00:02:39.956 --> 00:02:41.324
  • I had a group of guysand we wanted to be rappers.
  • 00:02:43.593 --> 00:02:46.496
  • Our name--PKO--it was actuallylike drug weights;
  • 00:02:46.496 --> 00:02:51.567
  • you know, like pounds,
  • 00:02:51.567 --> 00:02:53.703
  • kilos, ounces.
  • 00:02:53.703 --> 00:02:55.338
  • The desire to succeed wasat such a high rate
  • 00:02:55.338 --> 00:02:59.876
  • that I woulda sold my soul
  • 00:02:59.876 --> 00:03:01.477
  • to get to the top.
  • 00:03:01.477 --> 00:03:02.612
  • We got ourself in a bunch of...
  • 00:03:03.913 --> 00:03:05.581
  • hairy situations.
  • 00:03:05.581 --> 00:03:07.717
  • (helicopter rotors thump)
  • 00:03:12.655 --> 00:03:16.893
  • (Smiley)Forty souls were under my care
  • 00:03:17.927 --> 00:03:20.196
  • and I was in charge
  • 00:03:20.196 --> 00:03:21.331
  • of one of Alpha Company'sthree platoons.
  • 00:03:21.331 --> 00:03:24.133
  • Almost every day
  • 00:03:25.301 --> 00:03:26.602
  • we were attacked by
  • 00:03:26.602 --> 00:03:28.104
  • improvised explosive devices--
  • 00:03:28.104 --> 00:03:29.439
  • bombs in the road,bombs in cars.
  • 00:03:29.439 --> 00:03:31.574
  • Snipers.
  • 00:03:31.574 --> 00:03:32.675
  • The injuries were constantand always fearful.
  • 00:03:32.675 --> 00:03:36.279
  • On April 6, 2005, woke up andread the intelligence report.
  • 00:03:40.216 --> 00:03:46.389
  • It said to expect suicide
  • 00:03:46.389 --> 00:03:48.524
  • car bombs.
  • 00:03:48.524 --> 00:03:49.425
  • So heading out into the city
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:53.129
  • I just nonchalantly toldmy squad leader,
  • 00:03:53.129 --> 00:03:55.932
  • you know, it's been aboutseven months
  • 00:03:55.932 --> 00:03:57.700
  • since I saw my wife,and I really miss her.
  • 00:03:57.700 --> 00:04:00.069
  • Not even being married a year,we were separated.
  • 00:04:03.573 --> 00:04:06.142
  • My first anniversary wasspent in a war-torn country,
  • 00:04:06.142 --> 00:04:09.212
  • in Iraq.
  • 00:04:09.212 --> 00:04:10.346
  • (Tiffany Smiley)The day he deployed was like,
  • 00:04:13.750 --> 00:04:15.518
  • it's, it's so surreal.
  • 00:04:15.518 --> 00:04:17.286
  • You go out to this field
  • 00:04:20.390 --> 00:04:21.691
  • and you see all the soldierslined up,
  • 00:04:21.691 --> 00:04:23.126
  • and then they load onto
  • 00:04:23.126 --> 00:04:24.160
  • these buses and...
  • 00:04:24.160 --> 00:04:25.261
  • (voice breaking) You don't know.
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:28.297
  • (Smiley) As we were heading outinto the city,
  • 00:04:40.276 --> 00:04:42.211
  • just on a normal patrol,
  • 00:04:42.211 --> 00:04:43.746
  • our mission to finda suicide bomber...
  • 00:04:43.746 --> 00:04:46.382
  • I spotted a suspicious vehicle
  • 00:04:49.552 --> 00:04:51.120
  • that the back of the car wasa little lower than the front.
  • 00:04:51.120 --> 00:04:53.656
  • (shouting)Get out of your car!
  • 00:04:56.926 --> 00:04:58.995
  • (Smiley)He looked over his shoulder,
  • 00:04:58.995 --> 00:05:00.363
  • raised his handsoff the steering wheel,
  • 00:05:00.363 --> 00:05:02.031
  • and shook his head no.
  • 00:05:02.031 --> 00:05:03.099
  • (shouting)Get out of your car!
  • 00:05:03.099 --> 00:05:04.467
  • Now!
  • 00:05:04.467 --> 00:05:05.568
  • (Smiley) I then shot two roundsin front of his vehicle.
  • 00:05:06.736 --> 00:05:08.538
  • (shots fire)
  • 00:05:08.538 --> 00:05:09.705
  • (bomb explodes)
  • 00:05:12.442 --> 00:05:15.178
  • (Klock) My pain wasn'teasy to see; it was hidden.
  • 00:05:33.496 --> 00:05:35.965
  • I got my first motorcycle
  • 00:05:41.537 --> 00:05:43.906
  • when I was probablynine years old.
  • 00:05:43.906 --> 00:05:46.209
  • When I was riding,I could be singing,
  • 00:05:47.543 --> 00:05:50.012
  • making up songs,or crying or screaming.
  • 00:05:50.012 --> 00:05:53.316
  • And jumping ditches,
  • 00:05:53.316 --> 00:05:53.850
  • and stuff like that.
  • 00:05:53.850 --> 00:05:55.384
  • My motorcycle didn't care.
  • 00:05:55.384 --> 00:05:57.053
  • (engine revs)
  • 00:05:58.087 --> 00:06:01.858
  • My parents were goingthrough a really tough time
  • 00:06:10.399 --> 00:06:13.469
  • and as they were fightingI heard them say
  • 00:06:13.469 --> 00:06:15.605
  • that I wasn't planned.
  • 00:06:15.605 --> 00:06:17.607
  • It made me question my life,you know, like,
  • 00:06:19.108 --> 00:06:22.278
  • was I wanted?
  • 00:06:22.278 --> 00:06:23.880
  • Is there a purposefor my life?
  • 00:06:23.880 --> 00:06:25.448
  • Like, why am I here?
  • 00:06:25.448 --> 00:06:26.582
  • I just causedso much trouble.
  • 00:06:26.582 --> 00:06:27.884
  • I was just hurting.
  • 00:06:27.884 --> 00:06:29.919
  • (sighs)
  • 00:06:35.391 --> 00:06:36.526
  • When I was sixteen,
  • 00:06:36.526 --> 00:06:38.127
  • I got pregnant.
  • 00:06:38.127 --> 00:06:39.495
  • I was in trouble,
  • 00:06:39.495 --> 00:06:40.863
  • and I didn't know what to do.
  • 00:06:40.863 --> 00:06:42.465
  • There was a part of me
  • 00:06:44.600 --> 00:06:45.801
  • at that time when I found out
  • 00:06:45.801 --> 00:06:47.770
  • that wanted that baby;something of my own,
  • 00:06:47.770 --> 00:06:50.573
  • to love and maybe givethe love that I didn't feel like
  • 00:06:50.573 --> 00:06:54.143
  • I was receiving, and yet...
  • 00:06:54.143 --> 00:06:57.613
  • I decided to get an abortion.
  • 00:06:57.613 --> 00:06:59.682
  • The procedure was done
  • 00:07:01.384 --> 00:07:04.420
  • and when I lookedover at the counter,
  • 00:07:04.420 --> 00:07:06.989
  • I saw my baby.
  • 00:07:06.989 --> 00:07:08.457
  • And I don't know whythat happened
  • 00:07:10.426 --> 00:07:12.728
  • other than, uh,it'll never go away.
  • 00:07:12.728 --> 00:07:16.699
  • I'm never gonna
  • 00:07:16.699 --> 00:07:17.466
  • forget that day.
  • 00:07:17.466 --> 00:07:18.568
  • So I tucked it away.
  • 00:07:19.835 --> 00:07:21.771
  • You wipe off your tears
  • 00:07:21.771 --> 00:07:22.838
  • and you get up,
  • 00:07:22.838 --> 00:07:23.739
  • and you didn'ttalk about it again.
  • 00:07:23.739 --> 00:07:25.041
  • I didn't realize that I wastaking a precious gift
  • 00:07:26.208 --> 00:07:29.545
  • and throwing it away.
  • 00:07:29.545 --> 00:07:30.913
  • (Graham) The Bible says,"what should it profit a man,
  • 00:07:44.193 --> 00:07:46.295
  • "if he should gainthe whole world
  • 00:07:46.295 --> 00:07:47.663
  • "and lose his own soul?
  • 00:07:47.663 --> 00:07:49.699
  • "Or what should a man givein exchange for his soul?"
  • 00:07:49.699 --> 00:07:52.602
  • What do we mean by soul?
  • 00:07:52.602 --> 00:07:54.570
  • You see, the Bible says that
  • 00:07:54.570 --> 00:07:56.672
  • the Lord God formed manfrom the dust of the ground,
  • 00:07:56.672 --> 00:08:00.142
  • breathed into his nostrilsthe breath of life,
  • 00:08:00.142 --> 00:08:03.112
  • and he became a living soul.
  • 00:08:03.112 --> 00:08:05.881
  • The soul lives in the body
  • 00:08:05.881 --> 00:08:09.218
  • and it looks outthrough the eyes,
  • 00:08:09.218 --> 00:08:11.420
  • it listens throughyour ears.
  • 00:08:11.420 --> 00:08:13.155
  • We'll never burythe real you.
  • 00:08:13.155 --> 00:08:15.891
  • The soul is compared by Christwith a value of the whole world.
  • 00:08:15.891 --> 00:08:21.530
  • Let's say you could takeall technology.
  • 00:08:23.299 --> 00:08:25.501
  • Your soul is worthmore than that.
  • 00:08:25.501 --> 00:08:27.570
  • Your soul is more valuable
  • 00:08:27.570 --> 00:08:30.873
  • than all the military powerin the world.
  • 00:08:30.873 --> 00:08:34.577
  • Your soul is more valuablethan all of the gold,
  • 00:08:34.577 --> 00:08:37.713
  • all of the world's currencies.
  • 00:08:37.713 --> 00:08:39.148
  • One soul is worth more...
  • 00:08:39.148 --> 00:08:41.350
  • one soul...
  • 00:08:41.350 --> 00:08:43.486
  • than all of the valueof the world combined.
  • 00:08:43.486 --> 00:08:46.122
  • And a person could wake upone morning,
  • 00:08:46.122 --> 00:08:48.557
  • and realize that they havegained the world,
  • 00:08:48.557 --> 00:08:51.894
  • but they've lost their soul.
  • 00:08:51.894 --> 00:08:54.764
  • 00:08:57.366 --> 00:09:05.408
  • (light switch snaps off)
  • 00:09:12.448 --> 00:09:13.749
  • It wouldn't be anything for me
  • 00:09:17.219 --> 00:09:18.387
  • to have ten to fifteen thousanddollars in my pocket.
  • 00:09:18.387 --> 00:09:21.424
  • It became more than just rap.
  • 00:09:24.126 --> 00:09:26.162
  • Now it's really about drugs.
  • 00:09:26.162 --> 00:09:28.264
  • Once we got to that situation,things took off.
  • 00:09:30.633 --> 00:09:33.269
  • We began to make
  • 00:09:33.269 --> 00:09:34.070
  • a lot of money.
  • 00:09:34.070 --> 00:09:35.371
  • Porsches, Benzes,
  • 00:09:37.873 --> 00:09:39.375
  • big dookie chains
  • 00:09:39.375 --> 00:09:40.409
  • that cost a lot of money.
  • 00:09:40.409 --> 00:09:41.811
  • Diamond rings, watches.
  • 00:09:41.811 --> 00:09:43.379
  • Houses, we began to buyvery, very popular night clubs.
  • 00:09:43.379 --> 00:09:46.549
  • At that time I thought,This is it, this is the life.
  • 00:09:47.683 --> 00:09:50.453
  • Gaining cars, girls, jewelry.
  • 00:09:50.453 --> 00:09:54.256
  • I was having a lot of fun.
  • 00:09:54.256 --> 00:09:56.192
  • It seemed like the partywas all good.
  • 00:09:56.192 --> 00:09:58.794
  • Hanging out with the buddieswas all good.
  • 00:09:58.794 --> 00:10:00.629
  • But then I'm laying in my bedat night.
  • 00:10:00.629 --> 00:10:03.733
  • It's me and my conscience.
  • 00:10:03.733 --> 00:10:05.668
  • And my conscience is saying,This is not well.
  • 00:10:05.668 --> 00:10:08.204
  • And me thinking--lemme go buy something.
  • 00:10:09.472 --> 00:10:12.374
  • I buy a Porsche.
  • 00:10:12.374 --> 00:10:13.576
  • I get excited for itfor a week.
  • 00:10:13.576 --> 00:10:14.977
  • But it wouldn't leave me alone
  • 00:10:14.977 --> 00:10:16.746
  • that something wasn't right.
  • 00:10:16.746 --> 00:10:18.147
  • There was a problem.
  • 00:10:18.147 --> 00:10:20.349
  • That thought of notbeing satisfied
  • 00:10:20.349 --> 00:10:22.985
  • just wouldn't go away.
  • 00:10:24.186 --> 00:10:25.321
  • 00:10:32.728 --> 00:10:37.266
  • (Klock) I wasn't satisfiedwith who I was.
  • 00:10:37.266 --> 00:10:39.301
  • I was carrying horribleguilt and shame.
  • 00:10:40.770 --> 00:10:43.005
  • I didn't spend a lot of timealone with myself
  • 00:10:44.039 --> 00:10:46.242
  • because I didn't likethe thoughts that came.
  • 00:10:46.242 --> 00:10:48.244
  • When everything wouldcatch up with me
  • 00:10:49.178 --> 00:10:50.813
  • I would change my scenery.
  • 00:10:50.813 --> 00:10:52.248
  • And I would move awayor change the situation,
  • 00:10:53.849 --> 00:10:55.417
  • or the changethe relationship.
  • 00:10:55.417 --> 00:10:56.819
  • I had my daughtersand... (sighs)
  • 00:10:59.021 --> 00:11:02.124
  • two divorces later,I was a mess.
  • 00:11:02.124 --> 00:11:04.827
  • I really had a desireto make things better.
  • 00:11:04.827 --> 00:11:07.797
  • I did the best I could to tryto be a really great mom.
  • 00:11:07.797 --> 00:11:10.633
  • As my daughters startto get a little older,
  • 00:11:15.204 --> 00:11:18.507
  • I just hit the wall.
  • 00:11:18.507 --> 00:11:20.976
  • I came to a point, I think,where I was just tired.
  • 00:11:20.976 --> 00:11:23.679
  • And I knew I was falling.
  • 00:11:23.679 --> 00:11:25.147
  • It was like having the rugpulled out from under me
  • 00:11:26.816 --> 00:11:30.386
  • and I didn't knowwhat to do next.
  • 00:11:30.386 --> 00:11:31.954
  • And so, I sent my daughtersaway with my family,
  • 00:11:31.954 --> 00:11:35.491
  • feeling like I wasn't even sureif I was gonna see them again.
  • 00:11:35.491 --> 00:11:38.694
  • And they don't know that.
  • 00:11:38.694 --> 00:11:39.962
  • I felt terrible.
  • 00:11:41.263 --> 00:11:42.731
  • I got on my motorcycle
  • 00:11:45.334 --> 00:11:46.635
  • and rode from Cabo, Mexicoto the tip of Seattle.
  • 00:11:46.635 --> 00:11:51.173
  • The stops along the way
  • 00:11:51.173 --> 00:11:52.575
  • were filled withscreaming and crying.
  • 00:11:52.575 --> 00:11:55.945
  • No one even knewthe depth of it.
  • 00:11:55.945 --> 00:11:57.580
  • Someone said to me,
  • 00:11:58.881 --> 00:12:01.283
  • You ride that motorcyclelike the devil's chasing you.
  • 00:12:01.283 --> 00:12:04.453
  • (engine revs)
  • 00:12:04.453 --> 00:12:07.389
  • It was true.
  • 00:12:07.389 --> 00:12:08.591
  • I felt worthless,
  • 00:12:10.392 --> 00:12:11.927
  • and I just wanted tofeel different than that.
  • 00:12:11.927 --> 00:12:14.897
  • (engine sputters)
  • 00:12:15.998 --> 00:12:17.933
  • Get out of your car!
  • 00:12:28.544 --> 00:12:29.945
  • (bomb explodes)
  • 00:12:29.945 --> 00:12:32.281
  • Help me!
  • 00:12:32.281 --> 00:12:33.449
  • (phone rings)
  • 00:12:35.718 --> 00:12:41.624
  • (Tiffany) I woke upin the middle of the night
  • 00:12:41.624 --> 00:12:42.858
  • with the phone ringing,
  • 00:12:42.858 --> 00:12:44.126
  • it was Scotty's commanderon the other line.
  • 00:12:44.126 --> 00:12:46.562
  • And he started sobbing,
  • 00:12:46.562 --> 00:12:48.297
  • he said, "Tiffany,I'm so sorry.
  • 00:12:48.297 --> 00:12:50.833
  • "Scotty's been hurtreally bad.
  • 00:12:50.833 --> 00:12:52.735
  • "There's shrapnel in his eyesand in his head."
  • 00:12:52.735 --> 00:12:55.337
  • When the doctor called meand he told me, you know,
  • 00:12:56.705 --> 00:12:59.508
  • "We removed his eye.
  • 00:12:59.508 --> 00:13:00.843
  • "We're gonna probably haveto remove his other eye."
  • 00:13:00.843 --> 00:13:02.978
  • And that's when I,
  • 00:13:02.978 --> 00:13:04.246
  • I don't even rememberthe conversation after that.
  • 00:13:04.246 --> 00:13:06.849
  • I just sobbed.
  • 00:13:06.849 --> 00:13:08.784
  • Probably for days.
  • 00:13:08.784 --> 00:13:10.753
  • (Smiley) My world was black.
  • 00:13:20.396 --> 00:13:22.798
  • I woke up in Walter ReedArmy Medical Center,
  • 00:13:22.798 --> 00:13:25.901
  • thousands of miles fromwhere I was supposed to be.
  • 00:13:25.901 --> 00:13:29.171
  • I didn't know where I was,
  • 00:13:29.171 --> 00:13:31.173
  • I didn't knowwhat I was doing.
  • 00:13:31.173 --> 00:13:32.875
  • And I realized that I'd neverbe able to see again.
  • 00:13:32.875 --> 00:13:36.312
  • The President ofthe United States of America
  • 00:13:37.346 --> 00:13:38.781
  • has awarded the Purple Heart

  • (voice fades out)
  • 00:13:53.429 --> 00:13:55.197
  • (Smiley)When I was done crying,
  • 00:14:01.937 --> 00:14:03.305
  • my grief quicklyturned to anger.
  • 00:14:03.305 --> 00:14:05.741
  • I thought I hadquote/unquote
  • 00:14:08.143 --> 00:14:09.878
  • checked every blockto be a Christian,
  • 00:14:09.878 --> 00:14:11.780
  • and still God had allowed
  • 00:14:11.780 --> 00:14:14.183
  • me to be blinded.
  • 00:14:14.183 --> 00:14:16.218
  • I felt God was responsible
  • 00:14:17.219 --> 00:14:20.055
  • and that I was gonna makeGod pay somehow, some way.
  • 00:14:20.055 --> 00:14:22.958
  • I denied God.
  • 00:14:24.159 --> 00:14:25.694
  • I turned my back on Him.
  • 00:14:29.064 --> 00:14:30.599
  • And I just sunk intodepression.
  • 00:14:30.599 --> 00:14:33.702
  • I was just a broken man,
  • 00:14:33.702 --> 00:14:35.337
  • lying in my bed, blind, useless.
  • 00:14:35.337 --> 00:14:38.173
  • I felt I had no value.
  • 00:14:39.641 --> 00:14:41.076
  • Why is your soul valuable?
  • 00:14:47.549 --> 00:14:50.552
  • The soul is valuable
  • 00:14:50.552 --> 00:14:51.887
  • because it's eternal.
  • 00:14:51.887 --> 00:14:53.856
  • "We fix our eyesnot on what is seen,"
  • 00:14:53.856 --> 00:14:55.724
  • the Bible says,"but what is unseen.
  • 00:14:55.724 --> 00:14:58.527
  • "For what is seenis temporary,
  • 00:14:58.527 --> 00:15:01.397
  • "but what is unseenis eternal."
  • 00:15:01.397 --> 00:15:04.166
  • You may be big and strong,
  • 00:15:04.166 --> 00:15:07.036
  • but I want you to know thatone day our bodies
  • 00:15:08.704 --> 00:15:12.574
  • are gonna die.
  • 00:15:12.574 --> 00:15:14.009
  • And "It's appointed unto manonce to die,
  • 00:15:14.009 --> 00:15:17.246
  • "but after this,"the Bible says, "the judgment."
  • 00:15:17.246 --> 00:15:20.115
  • We'll have to stand before God.
  • 00:15:21.350 --> 00:15:23.085
  • God is going to judge sin.
  • 00:15:23.852 --> 00:15:26.255
  • Sin is disobedience to God'slaws and His standards.
  • 00:15:26.255 --> 00:15:30.159
  • You see, the Bible sayswe have all sinned;
  • 00:15:30.159 --> 00:15:32.494
  • come short of God's glory.
  • 00:15:32.494 --> 00:15:34.897
  • The Bible says that"the wages of sin is death."
  • 00:15:34.897 --> 00:15:39.668
  • You see, our sinsseparate us,
  • 00:15:39.668 --> 00:15:42.004
  • we're estranged from God,
  • 00:15:42.004 --> 00:15:43.372
  • but God loves us
  • 00:15:43.372 --> 00:15:44.840
  • and He doesn't want us to beseparated from Him.
  • 00:15:44.840 --> 00:15:47.943
  • He wants us to havefellowship with Him.
  • 00:15:47.943 --> 00:15:50.145
  • But sin is that barrier.
  • 00:15:50.145 --> 00:15:51.613
  • Your sins block the way.
  • 00:15:51.613 --> 00:15:52.948
  • So God devised a plan,and what is that plan?
  • 00:15:52.948 --> 00:15:55.484
  • That plan is that
  • 00:15:55.484 --> 00:15:56.418
  • "God so loved the world
  • 00:15:56.418 --> 00:15:58.120
  • "that He gave His only
  • 00:15:58.120 --> 00:15:59.755
  • "begotten Son

  • "but should have
  • 00:16:03.525 --> 00:16:04.626
  • "everlasting life."
  • 00:16:04.626 --> 00:16:05.861
  • Jesus Christ took our sins,
  • 00:16:05.861 --> 00:16:07.463
  • and Jesus said,
  • 00:16:07.463 --> 00:16:08.864
  • "I am the way, the truth,
  • 00:16:08.864 --> 00:16:10.833
  • "and the life.
  • 00:16:10.833 --> 00:16:11.800
  • "No man comes to the Father

  • "but by Me."
  • 00:16:14.269 --> 00:16:15.304
  • 00:16:19.174 --> 00:16:21.844
  • (no engine noise)
  • 00:16:21.844 --> 00:16:24.646
  • 00:16:24.646 --> 00:16:33.522
  • (crow caws)
  • 00:16:33.522 --> 00:16:35.524
  • (Klock)I was just running
  • 00:16:42.498 --> 00:16:43.932
  • and I ended up in a small townin South Dakota,
  • 00:16:43.932 --> 00:16:47.136
  • at a friend's custommotorcycle shop.
  • 00:16:47.136 --> 00:16:48.837
  • I was helping him out
  • 00:16:51.807 --> 00:16:53.242
  • and he invited meto church one day.
  • 00:16:53.242 --> 00:16:55.043
  • And so I thought,(scoffs) yeah, okay.
  • 00:16:55.043 --> 00:16:57.679
  • The pastor was preachingthat day about,
  • 00:17:00.516 --> 00:17:02.651
  • a Heavenly Fatherthat loves you.
  • 00:17:02.651 --> 00:17:05.053
  • He doesn't carewhere you've been,
  • 00:17:05.053 --> 00:17:06.622
  • or what you've done.
  • 00:17:06.622 --> 00:17:08.056
  • Or how you walk into that church.
  • 00:17:08.056 --> 00:17:11.093
  • He just loves you.
  • 00:17:11.093 --> 00:17:12.461
  • You don't have to earn it.
  • 00:17:12.461 --> 00:17:13.395
  • You just can accept it.
  • 00:17:13.395 --> 00:17:15.330
  • I believed that was true andthat I could be forgiven.
  • 00:17:16.632 --> 00:17:19.434
  • Washed clean and start over.
  • 00:17:19.434 --> 00:17:21.436
  • And the transformation
  • 00:17:22.538 --> 00:17:24.173
  • and all of that, I wanted it.
  • 00:17:24.173 --> 00:17:25.941
  • That day,
  • 00:17:29.178 --> 00:17:30.712
  • in a clumsy, awkward,
  • 00:17:30.712 --> 00:17:31.780
  • tear-filled way,
  • 00:17:31.780 --> 00:17:33.248
  • I invited Jesus into my heart.
  • 00:17:33.248 --> 00:17:34.983
  • (engine rumbles)
  • 00:17:36.118 --> 00:17:38.887
  • I felt different inside.
  • 00:17:38.887 --> 00:17:41.290
  • And I felt hope rising up.
  • 00:17:41.290 --> 00:17:44.059
  • Like a motorcycle,God has transformed
  • 00:17:45.494 --> 00:17:47.863
  • and rebuilt me.
  • 00:17:47.863 --> 00:17:49.698
  • I have watched Him redeem
  • 00:17:51.066 --> 00:17:53.235
  • my relationships
  • 00:17:53.235 --> 00:17:54.136
  • with my daughters.
  • 00:17:54.136 --> 00:17:55.270
  • I'm married now

  • to that friend Brian.
  • 00:18:02.277 --> 00:18:03.545
  • God has blessed me
  • 00:18:05.447 --> 00:18:07.182
  • with opportunities to help
  • 00:18:07.182 --> 00:18:09.751
  • young girls that were in
  • 00:18:09.751 --> 00:18:11.119
  • the same situation I was in.
  • 00:18:11.119 --> 00:18:12.487
  • When you really think about
  • 00:18:13.488 --> 00:18:15.157
  • the fact that Jesus died
  • 00:18:15.157 --> 00:18:17.059
  • on the cross for you,
  • 00:18:17.059 --> 00:18:19.728
  • it changes the way
  • 00:18:19.728 --> 00:18:20.829
  • you look at everything.
  • 00:18:20.829 --> 00:18:21.797
  • I'm a different person.
  • 00:18:21.797 --> 00:18:23.098
  • I have worth!
  • 00:18:23.098 --> 00:18:24.266
  • Like, I have worth.
  • 00:18:24.266 --> 00:18:25.767
  • It's so hard to even
  • 00:18:25.767 --> 00:18:27.102
  • put into words.
  • 00:18:27.102 --> 00:18:28.470
  • I'm a new person.
  • 00:18:28.470 --> 00:18:29.771
  • You see, the Bible says Goddoes not want to take away life.
  • 00:18:34.042 --> 00:18:36.979
  • Instead He devises waysthat a banished person
  • 00:18:36.979 --> 00:18:40.782
  • may not remainestranged from Him.
  • 00:18:40.782 --> 00:18:43.919
  • Why should we be concernedabout our soul?

  • pleasing to God.
  • 00:22:42.023 --> 00:22:43.024
  • (Smiley) I didn't want toask God to help,
  • 00:22:51.833 --> 00:22:54.636
  • and that depression, that,just, stress and just, fear
  • 00:22:54.636 --> 00:22:58.240
  • just began to well up.
  • 00:22:58.240 --> 00:23:00.075
  • Because I was makinga choice to live life on my own.
  • 00:23:00.075 --> 00:23:03.478
  • I got transferred tothe Blind Rehabilitation Center
  • 00:23:04.913 --> 00:23:08.149
  • where I learned to beas independent as possible.
  • 00:23:08.149 --> 00:23:10.652
  • One day after finishinga workout,
  • 00:23:13.955 --> 00:23:16.091
  • looking for the Blind Center,
  • 00:23:16.091 --> 00:23:17.592
  • I got lost
  • 00:23:17.592 --> 00:23:18.660
  • for over a half an hour,in the hot, ninety degree,
  • 00:23:18.660 --> 00:23:22.564
  • Palo Alto sun.
  • 00:23:22.564 --> 00:23:23.765
  • I tried to backtrack.
  • 00:23:23.765 --> 00:23:25.901
  • Yelling out loud,
  • 00:23:25.901 --> 00:23:27.135
  • Is anyone here?
  • 00:23:27.135 --> 00:23:28.336
  • But everyone had left.
  • 00:23:28.336 --> 00:23:30.171
  • I didn't know what to donor where to turn.
  • 00:23:30.171 --> 00:23:33.275
  • I just threw my stickdown in anger.
  • 00:23:35.377 --> 00:23:37.712
  • And I cried out to God
  • 00:23:38.980 --> 00:23:40.081
  • in a way in which I had not done
  • 00:23:40.081 --> 00:23:42.017
  • in months.
  • 00:23:42.017 --> 00:23:43.451
  • Denying God...
  • 00:23:45.020 --> 00:23:47.455
  • There was such an emptiness,
  • 00:23:47.455 --> 00:23:48.857
  • and such a lost feeling
  • 00:23:48.857 --> 00:23:51.159
  • that I had never known before.
  • 00:23:51.159 --> 00:23:54.362
  • And once I knew
  • 00:23:55.564 --> 00:23:57.999
  • that the reason I was lost,
  • 00:23:57.999 --> 00:23:59.834
  • and the reason that I hadno purpose or direction,
  • 00:23:59.834 --> 00:24:02.737
  • was because I didn'thave Christ...
  • 00:24:02.737 --> 00:24:04.739
  • I had to repent.
  • 00:24:07.309 --> 00:24:08.577
  • I had to ask God
  • 00:24:08.577 --> 00:24:09.911
  • to forgive me for denying Him.
  • 00:24:09.911 --> 00:24:11.613
  • It meant that I wastaking responsibility
  • 00:24:11.613 --> 00:24:14.783
  • for the choices andthe decisions that I made.
  • 00:24:14.783 --> 00:24:16.985
  • I realized that God loves me
  • 00:24:18.653 --> 00:24:20.555
  • and that God is there for me
  • 00:24:20.555 --> 00:24:21.723
  • and that Christ died for me.
  • 00:24:21.723 --> 00:24:22.857
  • And I was now able to forgivethe man who blew himself up
  • 00:24:24.092 --> 00:24:27.095
  • and it enabled me tohave purpose in my life.
  • 00:24:27.095 --> 00:24:30.165
  • But it's us
  • 00:24:31.166 --> 00:24:32.000
  • who make that decision:
  • 00:24:32.000 --> 00:24:32.934
  • Do we want to choose Christ
  • 00:24:32.934 --> 00:24:33.902
  • or do we not?
  • 00:24:33.902 --> 00:24:34.703
  • (cheering)
  • 00:24:35.503 --> 00:24:38.673
  • There was still stress;
  • 00:24:39.975 --> 00:24:40.976
  • there was still anxiety.
  • 00:24:40.976 --> 00:24:41.977
  • But I truly believe
  • 00:24:41.977 --> 00:24:44.245
  • that Christ was carrying me.
  • 00:24:44.245 --> 00:24:45.614
  • He was holding meand my wifetogether.

  • that Christ died for me.
  • 00:25:23.685 --> 00:25:24.986
