Jacob Blake, an African-American man who was shot by the police and has been left paralysed, has finally spoken to the public from his hospital bed and his message is simple … don’t take life for granted.

A video was posted this weekend by Blake’s family attorney, Ben Crump, and it shows Jacob lying in his hospital gown and addressing the camera, with positive spirit.

All his message says was, the things we take for granted in life — like walking, for instance — can be taken from you in a flash, and he wants all the young’ns and old folks who might be listening to take notice.

He tells anybody who might not be living right to turn things around, as he assures them they don’t wanna end up like him … with unbearable pain, which he documents in great detail. He also addresses the African-American community at large.

It is good to see Jacob in good spirits despite what has happened to him, spreading nothing but positive vibes and advice and preaching unity, gratitude and good deeds, with no mention of the cop who shot him.
