Has someone ever saved your life?
Do you have an instance in your life that might have been the end, if some other person hadn't saved you? Who was it? What happened?
When I was a teenager, I was in an awful car accident. It would have been very possible for me to have died from blood loss, but thanks to a kind man who pulled me out of the car (I don't remember this happening, and I never saw the man or talked to him, but I am still grateful for what he did for me) and the amazing women who patched me up in the ambulance, I arrived at the hospital in relatively good condition. My jaw was still terribly broken and I still had injuries that needed to be taken care of, but as far as losing blood goes, I was right as rain. Those women were just doing their jobs, but every day people live thanks to those that choose to dedicate their lives to helping others.
After graduating from high school and suffering a terrible spinal injury in football practice, I was very downhearted and depressed. Although I was getting ready to go to a new school to further my education, my desire and heart were not in it. A horrible fire occurred at a gas station where I was watching a ball game with friends, Other friends were cleaning car racks with gas and wrongfully hurrying to get through with their afternoon jobs. A misguided teen, about thirteen years old, tossed a burning cigarette into the racks and set the two workers on fire. It was not meant as a deliberate attempt to hurt them, but as I was trying to save one friend by rolling him over, as he was on fire. my life took a new turn and a new desire arose within me. The friends died, yet I was reborn and later became a special needs teacher until I had to retire later with a brain tumor after 25 years in the classroom. My friend had died. despite my attempts to save his life, yet what happened as a result, gave me a new will and determination to succeed and help those in need. Yes, he did save my life.
Few people saved my life: my husband few times, literally when I slipped while climbing, my doctor during childbirth and also a stranger after the car accident.
We don't realize how much we rely on other people, dear to our heart or just strangers until we are totally dependable on their help....
You tell me. About April last year, a young man started shouting at me on the street. I was alone and it was about 21 45 hrs. He was about 30 metres away. As he got closer he was shouting noticeably louder. He got to within 1.85 metres and pushed his hands into his pockets, still shouting and looking really frightening.
I felt a sense of impending doom.
I stood where I was, folded my hands, looked up to heaven and started praying. When I did look in his direction, he was about 30 metres away walking backwards with a strange look on his face. He then turned around and went away. This is a true story.
