The Valley of the Shadow of Death
A Tale of Tragedy and RedemptionBook - 2015
"In this heart-wrenching memoir, former NFL star Kermit Alexander tells the devastating true story of the horrific massacre of his family and his subsequent years of despair, followed by a spiritual renewal that showed him a way to rebuild his family and reclaim his life. On the morning of August 31, 1984, in the South Central section of Los Angeles, three armed men broke into a house, brutally murdering two women and two young boys. The victims were Ebora Alexander, Dietra Alexander, Damani Garner, and Damon Bonner - the mother, sister, and nephews of retired All-Pro cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers Kermit Alexander... He describes his journey through the "wilderness" of despair - the years of isolation living out of his car, broke, depressed, and sick... Kermit opens up about his darkest hours, but also what it took to turn his life around, rebuild his family, and ultimately find peace."-- provided from publisher.
