Life is full of second chances, It's just that we don't realise that. I realised it today.

When I was ten I experienced something that no one ever wishes -a car accident. It was the 3rd of December 2003 when I remembered that the following day was my sister's birthday. It was a shame, but it was even more a shame not to listen carefully to my dad's wise words; 'Be careful' he said.

Today, the 11th of August 2010 I am lying here, by the candle light and staring at the sky hopefully seeing one of the most beautiful things on earth that amazes me- a shooting star. As I lie here, feeling warm, safe and sound my thoughts go back to that day....as they lifted me into the ambulance I prayed to god...but to my astonishment the words that were running through my head and the thoughts I had weren't of selfishness. I prayed, I prayed to God to keep those children that suffer famine and everyday pain to keep them safe and look over them. And as I was staring at the sky I thought that it is a also a shame that in this wonderful world such cruel things exist and that at that exact moment children were dying of famine and were lying down breathing their last breaths... while I was there, having no fear of dying. I then realised that God had given me a second chance that day, a second chance to live this beautiful life, to make the most of it and to live it to the full by being able to help others. Going back to that day I repeated to myself that all was going to be okay, that the following day I was going to wake up warm in my bed, dress up and head to school to see my classmates again. It is amazing how at difficult and impossible times you just wish to go back to your normal life, a life that you despite and wish that it was better and less harsh. It is a shame too that I am not treasuring the second chance God had given me, a second chance that every man on this piece of rock wishes. So today, I am lying here staring at the sky hopefully to see a shooting star and, not wishing anything, say 'What a beautiful thing is life. From now on I will say yes to life. Yes to every oppurtunity that life gives me, yes to the dreams I want to accomplish, yes to hope, yes to the bad things that will ever happen to me because, yes, everything happens for a reason.'
