Imagine waiting for your sweetheart to return from an intense war zone for over a year, and planning your future together, only to have him skyjack an airplane and shatter all those plans. Much has been written about the “wounded warriors” but not enough about the “wounded waiters.” At the tender age of 22, Mary Stevenson sat in federal court and heard the judge pronounce a 30 year sentence on the man she loved. Years of more waiting for his release from prison ensued, but that trauma is what pushed her onto her spiritual path to change her life for the better.
