About five minutes after starting the route, a car passed us and the terrorists fired about 30 bullets at us. My sister and I managed to free ourselves and immediately realized it was a terrorist attack. One of the terrorists got out of the car to make sure we were killed. I realized that I was either going to let life pass me by or I was going to live it and that’s how I chose to live.”
