Before learning of Christian Science I became increasingly perplexed and troubled in my search for truth. Sometimes I'd spend hours trying to figure out the meaning and nature of life, but I could not come to any satisfying conclusions. What relief I experienced when I found Christian Science; my questions found a response. Through the study of this Science I'm gaining greater peace and security.

On a lovely summer morning in 1987 I took a walk through our city park, which stretches out alongside a river. This particular morning I met no one else along the path. Then suddenly a voice behind me sounded, "Hi there"; an arm was flung around my throat, and I was whisked across the grass into a wooded area. Because our community is a safe one, generally free of violent incidents, my first reaction was that this had to be a joke, that this couldn't be happening to me. But quickly I realized the danger. Frantically, I tried to cling to bush branches but was pulled away.
