Blessed or Cursed

  Blessed or Cursed
Author: Rayco Saunders  [see all books by this author]



A young man, finding his mom dead of an overdose, starts a downward spiral. A downward spiral that nearly kills him. Introverted, distrustful of authority figures, this spiral finds him on the street selling drugs by the age of 14. Shot, stabbed and betrayed, he is destined for failure. Ultimately, his luck runs out when he becomes another custodial youngster in a Pittsburgh juvenile center before being sent to far-off state prisons in the eastern part of the state. Yet the rebellious young man emerges from his prison experience wiser and changed. Events unfold, from an uncaring prison doctor who dismisses a serious foot injury as insignificant to sadistic guards. In the process, he is introduced to the world of professional boxing. He excels and his pugilistic accomplishments transport him from the rough neighborhood of Pittsburgh to far-off places in the US and Europe. The formidable boxing contender that came upon the scene in the early 1990’s. His unique story is one of perseverance against the odds. It needs to be shared, as it inspires hope in the human spirit. It is not a story of a boxer, but of a person who, in the darkest recess of his lockup, finds an invincible self worth an understanding of himself.
