what tragedy you've faced before that has given you a new meaning of life?
When i was 3 years old, my mother and I were in a car accident. Something about a rocking chair in the road, that's what I've been told. I was the only survivor. My dad said I was in and out of conciseness for about a month. I recovered to the point of being a "normal" 5 year-old, Although it was a tremendous loss to me, it has forever changed my life for the better. Losing my mom was terrible and I've spent countless hours crying my eyes out, but I feel as though i was saved for a purpose. I am a healthy 18 year-old now, going off to college in a few months. And I've incorporated many friends of my mom's and mine into my "family". I consider them family. If I were given the choice to change the past and save my mom, I wouldn't. I have been blessed with life and I know its value now. Has anyone else had an experience like mine?
