“When I was a teenager, after I graduated High School, a friend and I went to find American like anyone with a brain would do. We hitch hiked our way South with total faith in God. And once we got a ride from some of these guys and they pulled off the main road and drove down a logging road and wanted to get sex from us. One guy reached into the glove compartment for a gun. I said, “Julie let’s get out of here” and we left with our backpacks and just hoped and prayed that they wouldn’t shoot us. After that I started carrying mace.” Sharon Jane Smith owns the store, A Repeat Performance.
