  • Creflo Dollar: All right, welcome, welcome.
  • 00:00:04.280 --> 00:00:11.070
  • Prepare to meet a woman whose life was changed when she was
  • 00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:16.040
  • betrayed and assaulted by her boyfriend and his secret lover.
  • 00:00:16.050 --> 00:00:21.200
  • Her attacker threw acid in her face,
  • 00:00:21.210 --> 00:00:24.240
  • and they both left her for dead.
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:27.230
  • Sabrina Greenlee: Instantly I fell to the ground, and
  • 00:00:29.240 --> 00:00:32.240
  • I began to see this white cloud come over my eyes.
  • 00:00:32.250 --> 00:00:36.010
  • The skin had came off of my face, my neck,
  • 00:00:36.020 --> 00:00:39.150
  • my back, my shoulders.
  • 00:00:39.160 --> 00:00:40.270
  • Everything had just slid off, and I was literally
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:43.060
  • laying out there dying.
  • 00:00:43.070 --> 00:00:44.280
  • Creflo: Now, the acid melted her face,
  • 00:00:44.290 --> 00:00:46.230
  • and she was instantly blinded.
  • 00:00:46.240 --> 00:00:49.050
  • The doctors saved her life but could not save her from
  • 00:00:49.060 --> 00:00:52.180
  • the suicidal depression that followed.
  • 00:00:52.190 --> 00:00:56.000
  • Sabrina: Like, I kept asking myself, "Why?
  • 00:00:56.130 --> 00:00:57.220
  • How did I get here?"
  • 00:00:57.230 --> 00:00:59.020
  • Feeling abandoned, depressed, lonely, dark, suicidal.
  • 00:00:59.030 --> 00:01:04.130

  • 00:01:04.140 --> 00:01:07.220

  • Creflo: I wanna introduce you to a woman who has experienced
  • 00:01:59.210 --> 00:02:03.030
  • one of the most horrific ordeals I have ever heard.
  • 00:02:03.040 --> 00:02:07.150
  • Though she was senselessly attacked and blinded and--she
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:11.200
  • will share today she's working her way through with
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:16.040
  • greater sight than she has ever had before.
  • 00:02:16.050 --> 00:02:20.090
  • Ladies and gentlemen, would you please help me welcome
  • 00:02:20.100 --> 00:02:22.270

  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:02:26.000 --> 00:02:35.230
  • Creflo: Welcome. Sabrina, okay.
  • 00:02:36.110 --> 00:02:42.110
  • There you go.
  • 00:02:42.120 --> 00:02:45.000
  • Welcome, welcome, welcome.
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:48.010
  • You know, I wanna, first of all, commend you for your courage
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:54.260
  • and for what you're about to share today.
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:58.090
  • It's a subject that's right now a hot topic, and we're right in
  • 00:02:58.100 --> 00:03:01.160
  • the midst of voting some things into place, but you and I are
  • 00:03:01.170 --> 00:03:08.260
  • gonna come together, and we're gonna tag team, and we're gonna
  • 00:03:08.270 --> 00:03:13.050
  • put together an instrument that will help others and hopefully
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:21.020
  • some of the tragic things you've had to experience, through
  • 00:03:21.030 --> 00:03:25.060
  • your courage and just by being here today, we hope to prevent
  • 00:03:25.070 --> 00:03:29.180
  • that in the lives of other people.
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:32.100
  • So, I congratulate you ahead of time for what we're about to do.
  • 00:03:32.110 --> 00:03:36.250
  • Sabrina: Well, thank you.
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:38.050
  • Creflo: Now, I call this "Your World" because you're
  • 00:03:38.060 --> 00:03:40.070
  • gonna bring us into your world and by doing that the people
  • 00:03:40.080 --> 00:03:45.120
  • that watch become a part of your experience and what you had
  • 00:03:45.130 --> 00:03:49.230
  • to go through, so let's just start right off at the top.
  • 00:03:49.240 --> 00:03:54.070
  • You're here for a specific purpose, and you're
  • 00:03:54.080 --> 00:03:56.280
  • gonna share some things with us.
  • 00:03:56.290 --> 00:03:59.020
  • It may be hard for others to hear, but they need to hear it
  • 00:03:59.030 --> 00:04:03.010
  • so we can come up with some solutions, and then
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:05.030
  • we're gonna back up and work our way from
  • 00:04:05.040 --> 00:04:07.180
  • how it was growing up to where you are now.
  • 00:04:07.190 --> 00:04:09.260
  • So, what happened?
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:11.130
  • What was this issue that took place, this love triangle?
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:15.070
  • Sabrina: I was in a, like you said,
  • 00:04:15.080 --> 00:04:18.200
  • a love triangle unknowingly.
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:21.180
  • I was dating a guy for only three months.
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:24.280
  • I had no idea that he had a girlfriend,
  • 00:04:24.290 --> 00:04:29.100
  • and I was called to a place one day.
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:35.100
  • He took my car. I woke up.
  • 00:04:35.110 --> 00:04:38.090
  • I had no idea, you know, where he had went.
  • 00:04:38.100 --> 00:04:40.030
  • I called him. No answer.
  • 00:04:40.040 --> 00:04:41.250
  • He called me back, and he was like, "Hey, come here,"
  • 00:04:41.260 --> 00:04:44.150
  • so, of course, I went there, you know,
  • 00:04:44.160 --> 00:04:46.280
  • thinking I could retrieve my car.
  • 00:04:46.290 --> 00:04:49.080
  • And he was at another female's resident, so him and I were
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:57.040
  • outside at the car arguing and as I turned my back to the door
  • 00:04:57.050 --> 00:05:03.130
  • she came out of the apartment.
  • 00:05:03.140 --> 00:05:05.270
  • I had no idea she was there.
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:08.110
  • I didn't even know where I was, actually.
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:10.060
  • I just, you know, was called to a place, and she came out
  • 00:05:10.070 --> 00:05:14.180
  • with a big cup and--with a concoction of liquid
  • 00:05:14.190 --> 00:05:20.010
  • Red Devil mixed with Clorox.
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:23.040
  • I found out later--the forensics said at the court hearing
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:28.050
  • that it got up--it could get up to like 400 degrees
  • 00:05:28.060 --> 00:05:31.020
  • in a matter of minutes.
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:32.270
  • So she came out, and she called my name really loud,
  • 00:05:32.280 --> 00:05:37.220
  • so she knew who I was.
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:39.020
  • Of course, I didn't know who she was, and she splashed me with
  • 00:05:39.030 --> 00:05:41.070
  • this concoction in my face and instantly I fell to the ground,
  • 00:05:41.080 --> 00:05:49.280
  • and I was laying on my back, and my breathing got really shallow,
  • 00:05:49.290 --> 00:05:55.180
  • and I began to see this white cloud come over my eyes.
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:59.150
  • At this time I couldn't move because the skin had came
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:03.050
  • off of my face, my neck, my back, my shoulders.
  • 00:06:03.060 --> 00:06:06.180
  • Everything had just slid off, and I was literally laying out
  • 00:06:06.190 --> 00:06:09.100
  • there dying, which was really hard for me because I could--
  • 00:06:09.110 --> 00:06:14.210
  • it was almost like I was trapped inside of myself.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:16.210
  • I could feel myself breathing, but it was getting more shallow
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:19.230
  • and shallow, and then, of course, I guess he felt sorry
  • 00:06:19.240 --> 00:06:23.200
  • for me, so he picked me up, he put me in my car, and he took me
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:27.130
  • up to a gas station, which was about three minutes.
  • 00:06:27.140 --> 00:06:30.140
  • Seemed like an eternity at the time, but it was about
  • 00:06:30.150 --> 00:06:33.010
  • three minutes away, and so he took me out.
  • 00:06:33.020 --> 00:06:37.250
  • He lifted me out the car.
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:39.270
  • At this point I could barely walk or breathe,
  • 00:06:39.280 --> 00:06:42.110
  • so he was dragging me.
  • 00:06:42.120 --> 00:06:44.030
  • Blood everywhere, and we got inside the store.
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:48.090
  • The clerk, she started screaming hysterically and, you know,
  • 00:06:48.100 --> 00:06:52.000
  • so she called 911.
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:53.190
  • They get me to a water fountain to the right of the desk,
  • 00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:58.060
  • and they start splashing water on my face,
  • 00:06:58.070 --> 00:07:00.140
  • but by this time I guess he panics or whatever,
  • 00:07:00.150 --> 00:07:03.180
  • so he leaves me there.
  • 00:07:03.190 --> 00:07:05.170
  • I didn't see him again for another year or so.
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:08.150
  • Thank God she called 911, and they were able to,
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:12.150
  • you know, get me some help.
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:14.090
  • Well, by this time they--I went to the local hospital and the
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:19.060
  • helicopter, they flew me to the Augusta burn center, where
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:23.040
  • I later went into a coma for a little over a month,
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:29.080
  • which was really tough and woke up blind.
  • 00:07:29.090 --> 00:07:33.180
  • Seventeen percent of my body scarred.
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:38.280
  • Creflo: This is a--it's really difficult to hear, and I know
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:45.000
  • even more difficult for you to talk about because of,
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:50.160
  • you know, we all have emotions.
  • 00:07:50.170 --> 00:07:53.000
  • We just work hard to make sure that those emotions don't have
  • 00:07:53.010 --> 00:07:55.240
  • us, but the question that just kinda rolls in through your head
  • 00:07:55.250 --> 00:08:00.040
  • is how could somebody do something like this?
  • 00:08:00.050 --> 00:08:03.240
  • I mean, just human respect from human to human.
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:08.080
  • How could--you know, what possesses a person
  • 00:08:08.090 --> 00:08:12.000
  • to do something so horrific, so egregious?
  • 00:08:12.010 --> 00:08:21.270
  • Like I said before in the opening, I've just never heard
  • 00:08:22.180 --> 00:08:25.030
  • of anything like this, and I think I'm gonna take a break for
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:29.050
  • a moment so I can do a proper interview, because I got some
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:33.280
  • weird emotions going on, on the inside of me.
  • 00:08:33.290 --> 00:08:36.130
  • So, if we could--let's take a break and when we come back I'm
  • 00:08:36.140 --> 00:08:43.000
  • gonna ask some questions and hopefully these are the same
  • 00:08:43.010 --> 00:08:46.050
  • questions that are in your mind right now, and we so appreciate
  • 00:08:46.060 --> 00:08:50.100
  • Sabrina for painting such a graphic, detailed picture of
  • 00:08:50.110 --> 00:08:54.260
  • what happened, but I had no idea that, you know, today
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:58.050
  • I would literally be able to kinda see just what happened.
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:09:01.260
  • But anyway, we'll be right back.
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:03.280

  • Creflo: Welcome back.
  • 00:09:44.290 --> 00:09:46.090
  • Now, Sabrina, you left off with waking up in the hospital
  • 00:09:46.100 --> 00:09:49.080
  • after this coma and discovering what you discovered.
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:51.200
  • Let's pick up from there with your story and what was
  • 00:09:51.210 --> 00:09:55.030
  • going on in your emotions and just all the things
  • 00:09:55.040 --> 00:09:57.080
  • that were going on, on the inside.
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:59.120
  • Sabrina: It was so tough.
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:01.000
  • It was so tough, and it was just senseless.
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:02.240
  • Like, why?
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:04.110
  • Like, I kept asking myself, "Why?
  • 00:10:04.120 --> 00:10:05.260
  • How did I get here to this place of--"
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:10.120
  • And feeling abandoned, depressed,
  • 00:10:10.130 --> 00:10:12.200
  • lonely, dark, suicidal.
  • 00:10:12.210 --> 00:10:16.190
  • All these things crossed my mind.
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:18.110
  • Like, "I don't wanna live like this.
  • 00:10:18.120 --> 00:10:20.040
  • This is not--"
  • 00:10:20.050 --> 00:10:21.250
  • I went from, you know, everybody is saying, "Oh, you're so pretty
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:27.000
  • and, you know, you're beautiful," and I knew,
  • 00:10:27.010 --> 00:10:30.160
  • you know, instantly that my vanity was gone.
  • 00:10:30.170 --> 00:10:34.070
  • Creflo: So, what motivated you to, you know,
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:37.080
  • keep pushing, keep going on?
  • 00:10:37.090 --> 00:10:41.180
  • Sabrina: At that time, I would say my kids, because
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:44.210
  • I was angry, even angry at God, angry at her,
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:50.150
  • the young lady that did this, angry at him, my entire family.
  • 00:10:50.160 --> 00:10:55.030
  • I mean, I just--there was a thousand reasons why, you know,
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:58.270
  • why I didn't wanna live, and I was angry at everybody.
  • 00:10:58.280 --> 00:11:01.070
  • My kids was really a big, big part of me
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:06.120
  • wanting to continue to live.
  • 00:11:06.130 --> 00:11:09.280
  • Creflo: Let's go back to this triangle again.
  • 00:11:09.290 --> 00:11:13.180
  • Tell me about this guy.
  • 00:11:13.190 --> 00:11:15.120
  • Sabrina: To be honest, Doctor, he was not a nice guy.
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:19.200
  • I think--you know, as I as think about it now, you know,
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:24.200
  • my life was on a rollercoaster ride up and down.
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:27.290
  • I had been through a lot of abusive relationships
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:30.150
  • in the past.
  • 00:11:30.160 --> 00:11:32.000
  • I didn't think that I was worthy of finding a good person, so
  • 00:11:32.010 --> 00:11:36.030
  • when I ran across him he was absolutely nobody that I would
  • 00:11:36.040 --> 00:11:42.160
  • allow my daughters to date or even refer anybody to,
  • 00:11:42.170 --> 00:11:46.150
  • and that's just being honest because--and there were
  • 00:11:46.160 --> 00:11:49.070
  • so many warning signs there in the beginning.
  • 00:11:49.080 --> 00:11:52.080
  • I mean, his--it was continuous lies, manipulation, just things
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:59.130
  • that--you know, I was tough, and I didn't allow things, and
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:04.110
  • I was a disciplinarian in my home, but then
  • 00:12:04.120 --> 00:12:06.180
  • when it came to men I just became weak.
  • 00:12:06.190 --> 00:12:09.160
  • And he knew that, you know, so I think early on he played
  • 00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:13.210
  • on a lot of my weaknesses.
  • 00:12:13.220 --> 00:12:15.240
  • There was a lot of lies. He wasn't a nice guy.
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:19.000
  • He was very controlling and manipulative, but all of
  • 00:12:19.010 --> 00:12:24.010
  • that together still was not enough for me to leave him alone
  • 00:12:24.020 --> 00:12:29.150
  • because I needed someone, you know?
  • 00:12:29.160 --> 00:12:33.250
  • Just felt like I had to have someone there.
  • 00:12:33.260 --> 00:12:37.060
  • Creflo: Well, how would you describe your self-esteem
  • 00:12:37.070 --> 00:12:38.280
  • at that time?
  • 00:12:38.290 --> 00:12:40.130
  • Would you consider it being pretty low during
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:42.210
  • that time, medium, high?
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:44.150
  • What was it like?
  • 00:12:44.160 --> 00:12:45.250
  • Sabrina: Oh, it was absolutely low.
  • 00:12:45.260 --> 00:12:47.210
  • Even though I put a smile on and I attended the kids' events
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:51.230
  • and I hang out with my friends, as soon as I got by myself the
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:55.220
  • majority of the time I was crying because of my past.
  • 00:12:55.230 --> 00:13:00.290
  • I had buried two brothers, a fiancé, and just feeling
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:06.180
  • abandoned, you know, by them, feeling really lonely most
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:09.190
  • of the time, so, of course, my self-esteem was really low.
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:13.200
  • I was broken.
  • 00:13:13.210 --> 00:13:15.080
  • I was broken from a lot of things that happened
  • 00:13:15.090 --> 00:13:16.250
  • in my childhood to adolescent years.
  • 00:13:16.260 --> 00:13:19.160
  • It was just one big concoction of something
  • 00:13:19.170 --> 00:13:22.240
  • waiting to happen, honestly.
  • 00:13:22.250 --> 00:13:25.200
  • Creflo: So, did this guy know that--in this triangle, did
  • 00:13:26.290 --> 00:13:32.070
  • he know that this woman was gonna do this?
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:35.080
  • Did he have any knowledge of it?
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:37.150
  • Sabrina: I truly believe he did because when we went to court
  • 00:13:37.160 --> 00:13:42.210
  • the prosecutor said, you know, he needs to come testify,
  • 00:13:42.220 --> 00:13:46.020
  • and so, of course, he comes and sit with the family.
  • 00:13:46.030 --> 00:13:48.270
  • He acts like nothing has happened.
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:51.140
  • He had no wrongdoing, and my dad and my family, they're cringing
  • 00:13:51.150 --> 00:13:55.250
  • because, you know, I got them type of cousins, you know?
  • 00:13:55.260 --> 00:13:59.080
  • Creflo: Nene and them.
  • 00:13:59.090 --> 00:14:00.200
  • Sabrina: Yeah, I got Bebe and Nene and them, and so thank
  • 00:14:00.210 --> 00:14:04.190
  • God they weren't there, but--you know, so everybody's cringing
  • 00:14:04.200 --> 00:14:09.110
  • like, "How, you know, how could he just be so nonchalant?"
  • 00:14:09.120 --> 00:14:11.220
  • And--but he later on tells me--so, this is the
  • 00:14:11.230 --> 00:14:14.140
  • one time that I was around him.
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.290
  • He tells me that, you know, "She said she wanted to kill you.
  • 00:14:16.000 --> 00:14:20.140
  • I didn't believe her, and she said--but she said
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:23.110
  • she was going to use a gun."
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:26.030
  • And I, "No, you know, don't do that," and so,
  • 00:14:26.040 --> 00:14:29.140
  • yeah, I think he knew.
  • 00:14:29.150 --> 00:14:31.020
  • He knew something was gonna happen.
  • 00:14:31.030 --> 00:14:32.140
  • He didn't know what was gonna happen.
  • 00:14:32.150 --> 00:14:34.230
  • I truly believe he did.
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:36.140
  • Creflo: So, I think this is the reoccurring question,
  • 00:14:36.150 --> 00:14:39.120
  • and I don't know if it was later discovered, but why?
  • 00:14:39.130 --> 00:14:43.000
  • What was her explanation? Why did she do what she did?
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:50.170
  • Why?
  • 00:14:51.120 --> 00:14:52.230
  • What was her--what motivated her to do this?
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:57.050
  • Sabrina: Of course, jealousy and that's the
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:15:00.230
  • first thing that comes to mind.
  • 00:15:00.240 --> 00:15:02.160
  • When she was asked in the courtroom if she had anything to
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:05.120
  • say--I was blind, of course, but I was told that she looked at me
  • 00:15:05.130 --> 00:15:10.130
  • and turned her head and shook her head and said,
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:12.090
  • no, she didn't have anything to say.
  • 00:15:12.100 --> 00:15:16.040
  • In that courtroom that day she had a son that was the same age
  • 00:15:16.050 --> 00:15:19.220
  • as my daughter, four, so our kids were four years old
  • 00:15:19.230 --> 00:15:23.120
  • at the time and just the thought of being, you know,
  • 00:15:23.130 --> 00:15:27.260
  • handcuffed and taken away.
  • 00:15:27.270 --> 00:15:30.040
  • In that moment I had sympathy for her, but, of course, I knew
  • 00:15:30.050 --> 00:15:33.280
  • that I had to start my life over and that she had taken,
  • 00:15:33.290 --> 00:15:37.240
  • you know, she had taken--she tried to take
  • 00:15:37.250 --> 00:15:39.240
  • my kids' mom away from them.
  • 00:15:39.250 --> 00:15:42.020
  • Creflo: Wow. Man, so what was the ruling?
  • 00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:47.290
  • What was the result?
  • 00:15:48.000 --> 00:15:49.090
  • What was the consequence of her actions as far as
  • 00:15:49.100 --> 00:15:53.200
  • the court was concerned?
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:55.150
  • Sabrina: Well, she received 20 years in jail, so I felt like
  • 00:15:55.160 --> 00:15:58.260
  • there was some justice there.
  • 00:15:58.270 --> 00:16:02.230
  • She will be currently getting out in about two years.
  • 00:16:02.240 --> 00:16:08.100
  • Creflo: How do you feel about that?
  • 00:16:08.110 --> 00:16:12.210
  • Sabrina: I've forgiven, and I remember in the beginning
  • 00:16:12.220 --> 00:16:18.240
  • someone would ask me, "You know, have you forgiven?"
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:22.030
  • And I'd say yes because it was the right thing to say, but
  • 00:16:22.040 --> 00:16:25.100
  • honestly I started the process because, I mean, sitting
  • 00:16:25.110 --> 00:16:31.260
  • in a room, being depressed all the time, and just
  • 00:16:31.270 --> 00:16:36.000
  • feeling like, "You know, woe is me.
  • 00:16:36.010 --> 00:16:38.190
  • What happened? Why is this?"
  • 00:16:38.200 --> 00:16:40.170
  • I mean, it just--it became old.
  • 00:16:40.180 --> 00:16:42.060
  • I knew that I needed to make a change.
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:44.070
  • And how do you do that?
  • 00:16:44.080 --> 00:16:45.260
  • I wanted--the first thing I wanted to do was--well, the
  • 00:16:45.270 --> 00:16:49.160
  • very first thing I wanted to do was put my hands on her, but
  • 00:16:49.170 --> 00:16:54.090
  • secondly I was like, you know, so now that now that I've gotten
  • 00:16:54.100 --> 00:16:58.130
  • justice--because the justice, it didn't fail me in that aspect,
  • 00:16:58.140 --> 00:17:03.080
  • but, you know, here I am at home with four kids.
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:07.060
  • What do I do?
  • 00:17:07.070 --> 00:17:09.070
  • And so, their lives are still going on, and I'm laying in the
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:12.270
  • bed, you know, feeling sorry for myself, so I just began
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:15.240
  • the process of healing and in the process of healing
  • 00:17:15.250 --> 00:17:18.120
  • I had to forgive, and I did.
  • 00:17:18.130 --> 00:17:20.160
  • I really started the process.
  • 00:17:20.170 --> 00:17:23.240
  • It took some years, but I've forgiven her.
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:26.060
  • Creflo: Yeah, and you've taken your power back from her.
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:28.150
  • Sabrina: Oh, absolutely. All of it.
  • 00:17:28.160 --> 00:17:30.080
  • Creflo: All of it. Sabrina: All of it.
  • 00:17:30.090 --> 00:17:31.290
  • Creflo: All of it.
  • 00:17:32.000 --> 00:17:33.290
  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:17:34.000 --> 00:17:38.020
  • I need you to verify something, but are you familiar with this
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:42.070
  • type of thing happening in our country to other women?
  • 00:17:42.080 --> 00:17:46.000
  • Sabrina: Oh, absolutely, yes.
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:48.230
  • I have a organization for domestic violence,
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:52.040
  • so in doing my research it's rampant.
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:56.000
  • It's widespread.
  • 00:17:56.010 --> 00:17:58.150
  • Women are dying every day at the hands of--of course, there was
  • 00:17:58.160 --> 00:18:03.080
  • another female that did this to me, but, you know, the majority
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:07.190
  • of women are dying at the hands of men and women.
  • 00:18:07.200 --> 00:18:11.130
  • It's serious, and I think we need to pay more attention to,
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:15.290
  • you know, what's going on in our households, and these women
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:20.040
  • are crying out for help.
  • 00:18:20.050 --> 00:18:22.200
  • Creflo: What would you like to see done in our government
  • 00:18:22.210 --> 00:18:26.150
  • where laws are concerned to, kind of, address this situation?
  • 00:18:26.160 --> 00:18:30.240
  • Sabrina: There needs to be stiffer penalties for these type
  • 00:18:30.250 --> 00:18:34.260
  • of crimes that's being committed against women.
  • 00:18:34.270 --> 00:18:37.050
  • I feel like if a man realizes that on the first offense,
  • 00:18:37.060 --> 00:18:41.200
  • "I'm going to jail for a year," he'll think twice.
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:45.270
  • Creflo: Yeah, one of the things I'm sensitive about is that
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:48.200
  • this is something that's been happening in African countries
  • 00:18:48.210 --> 00:18:53.040
  • and other countries around the world for a long, long time.
  • 00:18:53.050 --> 00:18:58.060
  • What would you say to those nations and those people who are
  • 00:18:58.070 --> 00:19:02.190
  • in authority concerning what they need to begin to start
  • 00:19:02.200 --> 00:19:05.280
  • doing for these women who have been abused for generations?
  • 00:19:05.290 --> 00:19:10.190
  • Sabrina: We really need to implement more programs in these
  • 00:19:10.200 --> 00:19:14.220
  • cities so that these women will have somewhere to go,
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:17.220
  • because the first thing that, you know, the abuser does
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:21.150
  • is they isolate you, and you're by yourself.
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:25.290
  • But what if we had somewhere that they know they can go,
  • 00:19:26.000 --> 00:19:32.180
  • a safe haven that they can call and talk to?
  • 00:19:32.190 --> 00:19:35.190
  • They will need to have more of those in Africa,
  • 00:19:35.200 --> 00:19:39.250
  • South Carolina, Georgia.
  • 00:19:39.260 --> 00:19:42.040
  • I mean, just everywhere.
  • 00:19:42.050 --> 00:19:43.290
  • Creflo: Yeah, you know, you said one thing and as far as the
  • 00:19:44.000 --> 00:19:46.160
  • preventative is concerned your self-esteem most of the time
  • 00:19:46.170 --> 00:19:51.090
  • will be responsible for the type of person you draw to you.
  • 00:19:51.100 --> 00:19:54.230
  • And when you have that young lady who lives in search
  • 00:19:54.240 --> 00:19:57.290
  • for significance, and she's in search for value, and, you know,
  • 00:19:58.000 --> 00:20:05.040
  • and she can't find it, then wouldn't you agree that this
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:08.290
  • is the type of personality that will end up drawing somebody
  • 00:20:09.000 --> 00:20:12.280
  • to her that will take advantage of her, lie to her, use her?
  • 00:20:12.290 --> 00:20:17.150
  • And so, we really need to get together on ways of how we can
  • 00:20:17.160 --> 00:20:22.220
  • teach women and men how to value themselves, and the self-esteem
  • 00:20:22.230 --> 00:20:30.000
  • that you display is gonna be like a magnet, and it's gonna
  • 00:20:30.010 --> 00:20:35.160
  • somehow or another just does this: attract people to you that
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:39.150
  • will take advantage of the weakness that you're showing.
  • 00:20:39.160 --> 00:20:42.050
  • Would you agree with that or add to that?
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:44.040
  • Sabrina: Oh, yeah, I totally agree, and I'm a living proof,
  • 00:20:44.050 --> 00:20:48.260
  • because that's just what happened to me and, yeah,
  • 00:20:48.270 --> 00:20:53.100
  • that is exactly how it goes.
  • 00:20:53.110 --> 00:20:56.150
  • I mean, you live and you go through things,
  • 00:20:56.160 --> 00:21:02.150
  • and people prey on your weaknesses.
