Human as we are, we are all busy worrying over petty things when we could get killed any moment by accident. Wondering what would life be without this and that. We are working painstakingly in hope for a brighter future. Did it by any chance occur to you that everything you have and every dream you've been trying to fulfill might all be gone in just a split second?

Morning is my favorite time of the day. I just love mornings! I love it when the morning sun touches my face. Everything seems to be perfect in the morning, so much to look forward to, and with renewed hope. And because of that, it makes it impossible to anticipate that something terrible might happen along the way.

One beautiful morning, as I sat so comfortably in a multicab on my way to work, while waiting for it to be full with passengers, everything was perfect and peaceful. When the cab was finally ready to hit the road, little did we know that we were just inches ahead from what seemed like a 12-wheeler truck. Whether our driver didn't notice the truck approaching or he did, but refused to give way, I didn't know. Even if the truck's driver had step on the break, it was too late. Passengers were now screaming in terror as the truck dragged us forward and in a fraction of a second, we were slammed at the wall in the side of the road. The next thing I knew, the multicab suddenly came to a halt and we were being pulled out by the bystanders. Miraculously, nobody got badly hurt. It took me quite a while to sink in what had just happened. I couldn't believe that I had just met an accident and got out of it unscathed.

It could happen to anyone, anywhere and anytime. It was somehow a life-changing experience, I must say. You will then realize that life is too short indeed. It gives you every reason to celebrate life. It makes you appreciate even more everything that you have right now.

Having to experience such accident and have been given a second chance in life, I must be grateful to God.
