Custom Story Sample Intro We've heard the term kidnapping before and it's thrown around loosely, but no one can really understand such a word until they've experienced it. I wish I could have been a person that naively threw the term around. Unfortunately, I don't control destiny nor can I guide the actions of others. My world was at war when I was abducted at 12 years old. I was told multiple times not to run away in the face of danger because no ninja ever runs from a battle. But when I watched the act of my mother getting pummeled as she was screaming for me to run away, I didn't really think twice about what I was doing. So, I did what was asked of me. I ran. I ran for what felt like a life time and I think I knew I couldn't have run but two miles. I wish I had known that I wouldn't have gotten away fast enough, but no knowledge is learnt the easy way. At least, that's what I've come to believe.
