Happy To Be Alive
I'm happy to be alive after being
pinned in my automobile for more
than an hour on the afternoon of Jan.
I was hit by a 1989 Jeep Blazer at
4:20 p.m. en route to school where I
was taking lesson plans that I'd for
gotten to pass in before leaving at 3
I look the full impact on the door
where I sat. Then a few minutes lat
er, the glass window in the door ex
With the sound of a shotgun blast,
glass blew over me, filling up the
lap of my skirt and my scat belt,
jacket and blouse that was cut off
when the paramedics arrived.
I am just expressing my happiness
for being alive. I thank the many
friends that tried to make my devas
tated car a more comfortable place to
wait the long wait for the jaws of life.
I will forever have a different out
look on humanity because of the
love and comfort afforded me by
white brothers and sisters in Christ
that read Scriptures for me and
prayed aloud for me as if I were
their own dear child pinned there,
not knowing whether the gas tank
would be the next thing to explode.
Thanks to the officer who attend
ed me by just standing if front of my
windshield at first, looking like a
general doing his job well.
Then the smile and inspiration
that enveloped his face as he heard
the song 1 was singing with the side
of me that didn't have a broken col
iar bone ana bruised nbcage, giving
a wave offering to the Lord God
Then he waited until I was in
emergency to hear my version of
what took place in the accident.
Then turning to my husband and
saying, "Mr. Hcwctl, if this world
had more people in it like your wife
it would be a better place for all of
us to live."
Thanks to the rescue squad and its
attendants that were so kind, con
cerned and caring for me.
And thanks to the members of the
New Hanover Hospital medical staff
that gave me the most courteous re
spect as they took care of the many
things they had to do to find all of
the bodily injuries that 1 now suffer.
And last but not least, thanks to
the little old white man orderly that
pushed my wheelchair through the
lobby when I was being dismissed.
He said, "I am going to pray that
you have a speedy recovery bemuse
I know that you must love Jesus and
children a lot by the way you were
praying and saying Scriptures in
"I will ask him to make your's an
instant, miraculous recovery and
that by Monday you will not be so
painful that you can give them a Dr.
