A Chosen Bullet is the story of what Bill's passion as a Chicago sports fan has taught him in life and the struggles this passion helped him to overcome from the day a 9mm bullet ripped through his neck from five feet away. Bill's life has been contrasted by deep darkness and then glorious light, characterized by overcoming through perseverance, stained by first underachieving and then finally experiencing success that few will ever know. A bottomed-out permanently paralyzed teenager becomes a two-time Paralympic gold medalist, a very happily married man, a blessed father of three children, and a successful businessman. With the support of family and eventually a deep-abiding Christian faith providing his foundation, these values and lessons intertwining with Bill's thirty-three year journey as a Chicago fan take him from tragedy to triumph.
