Ever ask yourself Why you did not Die that day?

Yes. A near fatal fall from heights. Was standing at the top of the stairs on the 2nd floor in a house below a refrigerator. My friend thought I had it...and I didn't. I was crushed beneath it as it shoved me like a train to the bottom.
Bounced me down 14 stairs and the fridge crushed me into a little ball at the bottom of the stairs. It almost killed me, crushing my spine, skulls and lungs.
A Vietnam vet saved my life. He was above the fridge at the top of the stairs, diving down on top of it and me, he pulled it up and back off me with one hand enough to get pulled out from under the thing. Another couple of seconds and I was a goner. In my minds eye, I saw a single hand glowing gold in the form of a "STOP!:. I guess that was both his hand and the hand of GOD I saw.
Wore a body cast, used a cane for years n years.... I knew I had some purpose to fulfill and everyday I wonder if I have yet...because Im still here. This is why I am now a First Responder EMT/LIfe Support, and I volunteer.
I was a cancer patient at 15, and had a lot of complications. Brain bleeds, an infection that nearly killed me, things like that. I know exactly what it is to wonder if I should even still be alive, especially because mine wasn't just a freak chance, but people insisting I make an effort to live.
Don't mind me, my PTSD and I are gonna go curl up in a corner and cry now...

Or more like the story I heard awhile back.
Their was a rabbit crossing the road. While crossing, he had a thought and died!
Actually heard it from a Pakistan, who said it was something to ponder in ones mind.
