I am an 18 Y/O blind guy who was shot by his father. AMA!
My name is Ross Minor. As the title says. When I was eight, ten years ago, on June 14th, 2006, my father came into my room, shot me in my sleep. From there he shot my brother, Ryan, and then committed suicide. Ryan and I were rushed to the hospital, where Ryan died. I lost my left eye, all the sight in my right eye, and my sense of smell.
Notes of Interest
When I did my previous AMA, I didn't have time to answer every question because of school. Now that I've graduated, I have more time than I could ever need, so I will be answering every single question. If it gets to a point where over 20 or so people have asked the same question, I'll probably post it here.
PM's on Reddit or Twitter are always welcome. I love the Reddit community and I love meeting new people. You guys have helped me more than you could ever know.

Sorry everyone, Reddit gave my router and rossman.ddns.net the hug of death. My poor little raspberry pi!
Thank you for the awesome AMA! It's not over, it's just being put on hold while I sleep :). Feel free to keep asking questions, messaging, and checking out the links I've posted. Thank you so much Reddit!
It's 2:00 and I'm answering questions again :).
I'll now be skipping over questions that have easily been asked well over 20 times. If I haven't answered your question, check the thread to see if I've answered it.
