Tragedies. They are what define us. They make us who we are today. As much as we try, we can never forget them. As hard as we try to avoid it, the past will always catch up to us. Have you ever
wondered what would happen if your life, as you know it, was suddenly turned upside down in a matter of seconds? Everything you thought you knew, was wrong? What you thought was impossible, became
your reality. Well then again, I’m not your average teenager. All I ever wanted was to lead a normal life. But unfortunately, my life was anything but normal. My parents had been murdered when I
was just a child. I had no idea what had happened to my siblings. And now more than twelve years later, the same people who hunted my family have finally found me again. My name is Sam Parker and
this is my story…
