Becoming a member of the Polar Bear Club is the dumbest thing that I have ever done.
My lungs seized instantly and every single limb declared mutiny at once. I tried to kick and stroke to the surface, but all I managed was a twitchy doggy paddle.
My face broke the surface and I pressed my palms to the tarp on the ice. I attempted to push up but my arms declared strike.
Peer pressure—the pressure to save face in front of others—leads us to make decisions that we would often never make on our own. The small private college I attended boasted strange peer pressures. A peer pressure to get your name spray painted on a rock (long story), a peer pressure to get married, a peer pressure to jump through holes in the ice into the lake. There was also a peer pressure to be holy.
Excerpt From Adventure Devos
You will find yourself hooked from the very first sentence. [This story] will make you want to run straight into Jesus' arms.
Executive Editor Jen Genovesi said this:
"Expertly handled by a relative newcomer to GCP ... It's absolutely captivating.
We get a glimpse into the full experience of what it means to put one's faith in God -- even when circumstances seem random, desperate, scary, shaky and wildly unfair. We see faith wobble, steel itself, invite others in, and rise with resolve. We see faith in action. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful job."
Proofreader Melody Davis said this:
A shining example of showing how an unfair, random act of violence can be used to convey the forgiveness we have from Jesus and the forgiveness we then must extend to others who have done us wrong. Very nicely done!
I heard a click, click immediately followed by a low, short burst of sound intermingled with shattering glass. A gunshot? The sounds didn’t register until after the pain did. My left arm stung, so I turned my head to find out why.
Crimson stained my short-sleeved polo, the upholstery of the car and jagged fragments of what remained of my driver’s-side window.
I expelled a shuddered breath at the gape of missing muscle and tissue from my upper left arm.
Oh my goodness, I’ve been shot!
My universe contracted until only my arm and the pain existed. I saw, heard nothing else. I need to get help.
When I tried to push the door open, it hit something. Combat boots and dark pants registered as the soft impact knocked me back into the driver’s seat. I never saw the color of his shirt or any other details about him — the shooter. Only black combat boots and dark fatigue pants.
He stood beside my car, pumping his shotgun to prep another shot.
Click, click and another low, loud burst of sound.
