I am my brother’s keeper. I am my sister’s keeper. I am destined for greatness. On the night of November 11, 2012, Leon was pulled over in a case of mistaken identity. He was shot, thrown on the ground, and handcuffed while an officer of the law hissed at him that he hoped he died.
As is expected, anger consumed Leon for years. He became comfortable in that pain and he didn’t want to let it go. The officers had not only taken away his ability to walk; but something even deeper than that– his sense of self-worth.
After spending a lot of time avoiding having to deal with what he’d been through, Leon finally filled his heart with a deep desire to influence change. He stopped holding on to what he had planned for his life before he got shot and started looking towards the future and what he wanted to create.
