This story gave me the courage to continue the vision God gave me on Jan. 2006. I am a RN nurse in recovery. I have BSN and twenty seven years of nursing. I have 20 years of experience in management. I could not find a job in the major hospitals in Jacksonville,Fl.Nurses are given a chance by the state boards. I was put in a program called IPN. I completed my contract with the board and IPN they would determine if I was safe to practice. These hospitals judge me on my past. Once I revealed I was in this program. My vision is to educate this community on the Disease of Addiction. I do not want another nurse to go through what I did.Why hold on to a liscence that you can not find a job in your profession? I decided to change careers.

Kudos to Cha Cha the family friends who invited him to have some wine with dinner while this robber had a gun to the teens head. Cha Cha is a hero. She had the the ability to dwarf this and divert the attention off robbing the family. What a great way to "regroup" a horrible situation.
