Dixon Smith, 63, said he used a shotgun to keep two alleged home invaders at bay on Thursday. (Credit: WOOD-TV)Dixon Smith is 63 years old and suffers from stage 4 lymphoma.  His wife went shopping last Thursday; shortly thereafter two men broke into their home.  He grabbed his shotgun and made them lie down on the floor while he called 911 and waited for police to arrive.  It turned out Smith had tried to help one of the men over the years.  However, he believes the man has stolen cash and Smith’s cancer medication in the past.  He told police he would prefer that the men get rehab rather than harsh jail sentences.

Who has injured you recently?  Who has broken into your life, figuratively if not physically?  What should you do now?
