THE STORY:

Learning the value of life happened to me the hard way. I was in a pedestrian accident in 2011 that threatened my life and made me reflect on the most important parts of my life: family and friends. While crossing a four lane highway, I was struck by an oncoming vehicle traveling at 45 miles per hour. At the rate of which the vehicle was traveling, I had a 20% chance of surving the accident. The possible injuries and head trauma was unknown until the hospital staff cleared all of the blood from my head, face, and body. What came out of the accident is a miracle, a minor head trauma, 5 inch lacaration around my right temporal and periatal lobe, several bruises, a number of cuts around my shoulders, my hips, my thighs, and my knees. It was as if it never happened, because a week after the accident I hopped back onto my bike and on my longboard skateboard to experience the freedoms of mobility, and because I know the value of keeping my life, I practice safety first, using a helmet whenever I ride my bike. I am blessed to have an oportunity to share this life with my family and with my friends. With this thought, I ride for the pride of having my life.
