Excerpt from The Stream
Written by Nancy Flory
An Army veteran was shot and paralyzed last year by a guy who robbed him and his girlfriend — and he’s showing Christ-like forgiveness to the shooter’s family this Christmas.
Chris Sanna was shot in September, 2015, after he and his girlfriend were robbed at gunpoint while they walking back to his car from a Cardinal’s game, KMOV reported. A black sedan pulled up beside them and the driver got out and demanded his girlfriend’s purse. “After she gave him her purse, he pulled a gun,” said Candis Sanna, Chris’ mother. “That’s when they turned to run, and he shot at them twice.”
Chris Sanna was paralyzed by the bullets, which went through his spine and also pierced his liver and lungs. Shooter Kilwa Jones was convicted in July of five felony counts and sentenced to 35 years in federal prison.
