It's kind of amazing how similar our feelings and reactions are. I was rear-ended in my car, at a stoplight on Main West, in January. The girl who hit me was doing 60 kph, maybe more - distracted, straight into me, totalling my car. She too began crying and asking if I was ok. Through my astonishing pain and tears, before I was taken to hospital by paramedics, I pieced together a sentence indicating I wasn't mad at her. My immediate feelings were of fear. Is my spine intact? Can I move my feet? Can I turn my head? Why is my left hand numb? If I'd been riding my bike to work, which I occasionally do, I am quite sure I wouldn't be here to write this, even with a helmet. The impact was far beyond what I'd ever imagined. But even days and weeks afterward, thinking back to the accident, I still don't feel angry. And I don't really know why.
