Shot in the face

My name is David Mata and I’m 21 years old. I was out of state visiting a close friend to get my mind off my Mother’s death, when everything happened. I was shot in the head. I was rushed to the emergency room in the ambulance. As a result of the gunshot, I had to go through 2 surgeries. 1 surgery for my jaw and 1 surgery for my tongue. These wounds need much care. Although, this changed the course of my life I’m not going to give up. I won’t forget that I’m blessed and strong enough to survive a gunshot to the head. Thank you for the love and support. Rest In Peace Mom!
