Detroit Lions’ tight end nearly murdered during missionary trip to Haiti – Via MLive

This morning, while browsing Twitter, I came across a story by Kyle Meinke from MLive that caught my attention immediately. It is titled, “Almost murdered: The harrowing tale of one Lions player’s trip to Haiti.”

In the story, Meinke tells the story of Detroit Lions‘ tight end Hakeem Valles‘ missionary trip to Haiti in 2015. A trip that Valles feared he would never return from.

From MLive:

What would you think about if you were about to die?

Lions tight end Hakeem Valles was sitting there, hogtied on the floor of some backwoods house in Haiti. He was blindfolded. All he could hear was screaming and screaming and oh my God so much screaming. But he couldn’t understand any of it. They were speaking — screaming — in Creole. He heard gunshots. He peed his pants. He thought he was going to die.

“I thought that was it, man,” Valles said. “My life flashed before my eyes. It was (bleeping) crazy, man. (Bleeping) crazy.”

So what does a man think about when he’s been taken hostage at gunpoint? What does a man think about when he’s about to die?
