One move backward, now striding forward
Tasha Schuh is writing a book about her life, and although the story is not finished, she has the title: "My Last Step Backwards."
That phrase is full of meanings.
It means the step Schuh took Tuesday, Nov. 11, 1997, when during a scene change for a school musical, she moved back, dropped through an open trap door and fell 16 feet onto a cement floor.
That single step made Schuh a quadriplegic, destined to never take another step.
