Imagine being eighteen years old, full of life and everything to live for. You're excited beyond words because you are carrying your first child and can't wait to see him face-to-face, someone finally to love of your own. You're on top of the world. You graduate from high school, in your first year of college, the future is as bright as the sun and as you know, no one can stop the sun from shining. Darkness however, crept in quicker than you could blink your eyes.Everyone knew if you needed help, well , I was the help master. I'd give you the shirt off my back and the food out of my mouth. I only wanted everyone to feel the happiness and the love that dwelled inside of me.
On November 22, 2003 I lost my life trying to share that love by helping someone in need. A young teenage boy struck me so hard that he literally knocked my lights out. I couldn't see a thing, my whole world went blacker than black. Fear gripped me like never before, blood ran out of my mouth and I was gasping for air. I couldn't breathe, and the only thing I could think of was my unborn child who had to make it because if he didn't, my mother couldn't make it without me. She would literally lose her mind. You see I am my mother's whole world. I mean, her whole world.
The only one she loved more than me was GOD. So I held on for dear life. It was so hard and it hurt beyond anything you could have ever experienced in life, but because of my love for my mom I stayed on this earth in a deep, deep darkness so I could give her the light and love that was inside of me. On March 16, 2004, the love came forth through my miracle bundle of joy, my son, Emmanuel Taran Hawkins, and I said goodbye forever. Please help my son Emmanuel AKA Super Love Boy stop bullying.
