I had my brother's fishing net in my right hand and I was trying to catch a dragonfly and I kept reaching over the water and I fell in. I was in a different world looking up at the surface. I had no idea I was in danger and I started breathing in the water; it felt good in my lungs and on the fifth or sixth breath of water, I was dead.I was in this void of darkness and without hope, and I spoke. I said, 'Where am I?' I could hear the words. A great love came down, saved me, and lifted me up; I was going to perish; I was in deep, deep trouble. All I had to do was except it; in your wildest imagine you cannot believe how good Jesus is. He spoke and said to my ears, 'Do you believe I created the universe?' and I said, 'Yes'.I was taken above the water and ground and I had the mind of Christ; I was in the family of the Father. His mind guided me to look at my corpse and we watched as my older brother breathed air in the strange dead flesh and it was so weird - I've never forgotten that sight, I can't get it out my thoughts.I trembled and screamed suddenly realizing I was created by the very words that proceeded out of the mouth of God, and Jesus spoke, he said, 'Go back,'; and on my way God said 'Black people have been wronged.'I rose from the dead and I could feel millions and millions of eyes watching me. I never heard God again.I've always found it fun to speak and think to Jesus about the thoughts of others; it seems I'm the only free person on the face of this Earth. It seems so strange people think about the Black Death plague and then watch a person die in a race car. I call it 'Gory Glory'
