Daddy Got Me A New Toy...

She looked a woman in her 50s as she walked along the sidewalk. Deep in thoughts on arranging her daughters wedding, the loan she was about to finally recieve to buy herself the small downtown house, a handful of things she'd bought for lunch... trotting towards home. Stops at the red hand telling her to wait till she is told to move. And when the time arrives she does as she is told. 5 seconds into the run, a squeek, a second-long moan, a roar of an engine fading away. Her dreams slowly losing color as her blood paints the road. She is to accept the rewritten script for her life thinking perhaps the director above has made a last minute change for that plot...

The face is blurred

Hi

I honestly dun know what to make of the pic but I do understand the post...

I always believe that life and death is determined by fate set by God.

em - this had been a car accident where a boy took this woman over & ran away. This is when she reached our hospital :-S

Hydra said...

God, fate, chance? Who knows? The fact is that life is unpredicatble, and constantly near its end. But I believe THAT's what makes life interesting and worth living.

Nice post, dr.

fallowing Hydra, life is more unpredictable in a lawless society full of brainless hoodlums.

This is so powerful. Many years ago a young man dear to me (I was very young then as well) was hit by a car and left. He died a couple days later, after doctors tried to save him. He was 21.
Life can be unpredictable wherever you are. I keep trying to remember to hold each moment carefully.

I remember when I was a child, my father got a traffic ticket for some small infraction. Instead of paying the fine, he had the option of attending a few hours of driver's safety class. He told me that the policeman teaching the class said that "a green light is an invitation to proceed with caution". I have always remembered that, and so I try to be very careful when I drive, or when I cross the street.

Is she going to recover?

Hey Doc,
Nobody really knows what might happen to us from one second to the next. It's how the mother nature designed it and for us is just a big mystery.
But one thing I know that's not a mystery. It's sad... very sad when tragedy hit somebody.
Nice one dude.
Cheers :)

hydra - thats the spirit but sometimes life seems so unfair...

Foulla - thanks but scenes of such are just like a large photo which sometimes never erase. This woman dies several days afterwards in the ICU & the boy who ran her over was traced...

Kimia - yeah! thats the worst part of it. Perhaps LAW has not been well defined in some countries...

jarvenpa - that is so sad. SOrry to hear that. These accidents are becoming more & more frequent...

nbb -

david - some phrase jus stick into our minds. That is a good one. Actually there are always people who feel they are too good of a driver and usually these are the people causing all the trouble for others...

Farzad - tnx man. Yeah and that is the beauty & sometimes the painful part of life...

moji - tnx man. wish U luck.
