Some things in life are like a midnight plane crash that happens when you didn’t even know your plane was going down. Someone slaps you back to consciousness and says, “You’re alive. You’re badly hurt, but you made it.” You crawl around in the dark trying to make sure all your family members made it, too. When you find each other, you weep from shock, pain, and relief. The next morning you notice for the first time just how bright the sun really is.
