Grace: Her faith in people, broken after beating by ex-boyfriend, is restored by kindness
Jacey Gengenbach was beaten unconscious by an ex-boyfriend breaking into her Omaha home in 2012. Since last month, after going public with her story, donations to help pay her medical, dental and therapy bills have poured in. “I'm honored. I'm dumbfounded,” she said.

Two men still make Jacey Gengenbach cry.
One terrorized her. He drove his van into her west Omaha garage door. He kicked open her locked basement door. He broke her jaw and her nose and pummeled her face, concentrating on her right eye where she'd had a tumor removed. That man is now in jail. She can't say his name without getting sick.
