My name is Ross Minor and I was shot by my father when I was 8, causing me to go completely blind. I'm here to answer all aspects of my life. AMA!
How I Went Blind
When I was 8, my father, upset over his separation with my mother, shot me in my sleep.. He then shot my brother, Ryan, in his sleep. From there, he committed suicide soon after. My father and brother didn't survive the event, but it wasn't so simple for me.
The bullet entered from my right temple. It severed the retina and optic nerve of my right eye. It passed through my nasal cavity and destroyed my left eye. It exited out my left temple and into the palm of my left hand, all while completely missing my brain.
