After the accident, my once active life looks radically different. I live with unceasing and worsening pain, extreme light sensitivity, and decreasing vision. The burns keep my body confined within the walls of my home 95 percent of the time.

While walls may contain my body, over time, I realized walls don’t limit or contain my prayers.
