Dear Marcus: A letter to the Man who Shot Me

Author and teacher, Jerry McGill, presents an intimate memoir which discusses the events that led to his becoming a quadriplegic.

His life, like several others, Christopher Reeve and Joni Eareckson Tada, took a different road when circumstances changed the course of their lives forever.

On New Years Eve of 1981, thirteen year old McGill was walking home with a friend, when he was struck by the bullet of an unknown assailant, leaving him a quadriplegic for life. This memoir is a personal letter to his unknown assailant, who McGill calls Marcus.

The data surrounding violence and youth is alarming.
