"I wasn't born blind," Ross explains. Ross Minor is a 19-year-old from Colorado Springs, USA. "When I was eight-years-old, I was shot in my sleep by my father, who then shot and killed my brother, and then committed suicide. The bullet entered through my right temple and exited out my left, into my left palm. As a result, I lost my left eye, the optic nerve and retina of my right eye were severed, and I lost my sense of smell."
