In ancient times people used to perform rituals making sacrifices to the Gods in order to forgo their wrath. In todays times the act of sacrificing is not as dramatic, but the emotional anguish is just as severe. We all make sacrifices at some point in our lives, from sacrificing that extra piece of cake to life changing sacrifices; such as sacrificing yourself for the good of others. Often times these sacrifices shape our futures, whether it be premeditated or not. In my book “Why Ruin Another Life” Raylene is forced to make a sacrifice in order to protect the ones that she loves. This sacrifice changes her life forever predetermining her future. Sometimes we can’t leave our fate in the hands of Gods rather than God.
