Over a year ago, Army veteran Chris Sanna was brutally attacked by a vicious thug in an armed robbery incident that would forever change his life. Although he was alive, he would now be paralyzed for the rest of his life. Now 15 months after the savage attack that’s left him confined to a wheelchair, Sanna has tracked down his would-be killer, and gave him a shocking surprise.
On September 25, 2015, Chris Sanna and his girlfriend were walking to their vehicle after a Cardinals baseball game when a black sedan pulled up to them. The two occupants of the car ended up robbing the couple and shooting Sanna in the process leaving him for dead.
Sanna, a resident of Houston, was in St Louis specifically to attend the game as a gift for his mother’s birthday who said all that she wanted for her birthday was to see a Cardinals game with her sons.
The man who shot Sanna, Kilwa Jones was arrested and sentenced to 35 years in prison for the robbery and attempted murder of Sanna. However, the army veteran has a special gift for Jones and last Wednesday, Sanna talked about reaching out to the family of the man who shot him
According to KMOV, Sanna planned to give the family of the man who shot and paralyzed him several gifts for Christmas. Even though, Jones had forever changed his life and had given him a debilitating disability, Sanna chose to forgive by giving.
“We’re supposed to get together, I got them gift cards and stuff for Christmas, we’re just trying to get the trial and stuff out of the way,” Sanna said. “They’re going to have to go visit him in jail, and he probably wishes that night never happened just like I do.”
It takes a real hero with immense character and Christian values to forgive the man who shot him and provide gifts to his would-be assassin’s family. There aren’t many who would be willing to take a bullet and still give back. I guess that’s the kind of men that come out of the US military services.
