I'm Janella Kaiy Draetty and I would be turning 19 today if I still lived. I was about 14 years old when I got killed.
I was walking down Alben Street when a guy hopped out in front of me with a loaded shotgun. He had told me to come with him to his house but I wouldn't. That's when he held his shotgun up to my chest and let go of the trigger. All I remember is falling to the ground, gasping for air.
Now I'll try to tell you what my life would be like if I hadn't died.
