â€śIt was the most painful thing,â€ť the 28-year said, recounting the Monday attack in which a stranger splashed a cup of acid into her face. â€śMy heart stopped. I almost passed out. It made holes in my shirt. Imagine that on your skin. I could hear sizzling.â€ť
A Christian, Storro returned throughout the half-hour to her profound belief that God is watching over her.
She points to the sunglasses, credited with saving her eyesight, that she bought 20 minutes before the incident as a sign of divine presence.
â€śFor some reason, I had this feeling I needed to buy sunglasses,â€ť Storro said in. â€śThatâ€™s Jesus, for sure.â€ť...
Here is a very good comment following the article,
"Is Safeway accepting donations or is it now Riverview bank? Please get well, Bethany. We are all praying for you and want justice to be served. I'm not prejudiced and the vast majority of blacks I know are wonderful and love the Lord. But I personally think it was a hate crime because of the randomness of the attack, the fact that the victim didn't know the assailant, and how especially cruel the attack was (disfiguring her and possibly blinding her). It will thus probably happen again unless the assailant is caught. I do believe that Bethany's guardian angel prompted her to buy those sunglasses telling me that even in this sinful world, God is still looking out for her. I'm glad Bethany is recognizing God's care over her even in the midst of this tragedy."
Not many see God's hand in their life in tragedy and give thanks for it like this young woman has done. It indeed is a wonderful witness to others. My prayer is that she will make a full recovery and remain strong in her faith.
