In mere seconds, I almost lost everything.

Something Real

So, I've got something to share.

I briefly made reference to this in one of the Get to Know The Me Behind The Screen Series. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out the series on my profile).

Anyways, I mentioned I have almost lost my parents.

My dad had a very dangerous job, as an officer. His life was on the line everyday.

My dad had a very dangerous job, as an officer. His life was on the line everyday. I know this isn't something everyone can understand, unless you have lived it.

But I'd like to talk about my mom.

It's been over a year. July 30th.

She was involved in a serious car accident.

Here are some images of the car.

An older man in a truck, with a boat attached, ran a stop sign.

My dad heard the call come in over the radio, as he was heading to work.

I can count the scariest moments of my life on one hand. This is the top one.

She was shaking, bruised. I'd never seen my mom like this.

I realized in the moment I hugged her, how mortal we all are.

There's so much more I could share, but I figured this is long enough.

So, take this as you will. But know this one thing,

We are all expendable.
