The Drummer Inside Won’t Quit
Roman Castillo, a T8 paraplegic from Albuquerque, N.M., is the definition of strength. He was injured in 2005 at the age of 37 in a home burglary shooting. “Getting shot four times is a trauma I don’t wish on my worst enemy,” he says. “And I was angry at myself for what? I don’t know, maybe for living in that apartment,” he says. Castillo’s home was invaded by two unknown men who attempted to kill him. “When he fired a shot, the gun misfired, which gave me a chance to fight.”
