I was hit by a car going forty-five miles per hour. Besides breaking bones, I suffered a life-threatening concussion. Luckily for me, both my feet were off the ground when I was hit, (I was running), and I was thrown through the air for 20 feet or so, rather than
mangled under the car. I only remember light and darkness and strong feelings while I was unconscious. What is really significant
about the experience is that I became a markedly changed person immediately afterward. I became profoundly concerned about other people and humanity as a whole and that change has directed my whole life. I lost my fear of death, and pretty much all fear whatsoever.
