In Alabama, there is only one person greater than "The Bear." That's JC himself. And although the legend has now been dead thirty years this year, he still has tremendous power over people - even non-believers. Even when they're not awake. I was one of them. A non-believer. Until he straightened me out in the strangest way.

What you are about to listen to is part of an unpublished novel, based on the absolute worst time of my life: The Winter of 1988-89.

As God only knows if I will ever finish the whole novel, I wanted to share at least part of it, this part, with the world. What you are about to read is true. I was so bad off I was seeing and talking to "Jesus" at the time.

This is a horrible, true story. One person called it "gruesome". I agree with that statement. It is a story not for the faint of heart. Turn back now, if that is you. What it really is though, is a strong dose of reality. Not of just how frail life is and how quickly and horribly it can end, but also of how cold and inhumane people can be to each other.

I was the only one who sat in the back, and who had a clear view ahead of everything that was happening.....
