My Story in the Jehovah's Witnesses

Why I would not do it anyway...
by R. Watters

If I could fly tomorrow
beyond the circle of the sea,
I would not do it anyway.

If I could head a company,
the biggest in the world
and have a thousand servants all around,
I would not do it anyway.

If I were a prophet
who could see ten years from this date
what would happen,

and could even foresee disaster and prevent it,
If I could be ageless and universally respected
and admired even by children,
I would not do it anyway.

Surely I would have missed out on being me.

I was conceived in New York City by design. My mother and father, Joy and Ken Watters, decided that having a 6 year-old beautiful little girl was not enough; they needed a boy. As my parents later told me, it was to help hold the family together. My mother prayed so hard that she told the Lord if she had a boy, she would give him to the Lord, like Samuel of Bible times (1 Sam. 1:11). This act of faith was destined to color the outcome of my life as you will see. I was born in Oklahoma City in 1952. more...
