A teenager sees a man who once tried to kill him and his family. He takes a gun from a friend and decides to take revenge. He hides the gun under his shirt and starts walking toward the man.

 

But he chose not to fire. He chose life - life for the other man, and a new life for himself.

 

This might sound like an excerpt from some crime story but it is an account of an actual event.
