"Your son was hit by a car..."

Are some of the worst words you can ever hear.

Seeing your son lying bloodied in the middle of the street is one of the worst things you can ever see.

Feeling the warmth of the strangers who directed traffic, formed a blockade with their cars, and surrounded your child so he wouldn't be run over again, is one of the most touching feelings you can ever feel.

Witnessing the kindness of your neighbors, as they run to make your child comfortable, offer to go to the hospital with you, watch your other children and feed them, bring you your purse and phone and car, is one of the most compassionate moments you can ever witness.

Experiencing the amazing speed of the ambulances, the patience of the paramedics, and the professionalism of the police, is one of the most humbling experiences you can ever have.

Realizing how much worse it could have all been, had your son not been protected by such incredible guardian angels, is one of the most grateful thoughts you can ever have.

"Your son is going to be alright"...are some of the best words you can ever hear.
