We all live in suspense from day to day; in other words, you are the hero of your own story. ~ Mary McCarthy

Fallen Heroes

I remember clearly thinking that I wish I could change my life the morning before the accident. Nothing was unusual about that morning, nothing that could possibly foreshadow the accident and the hell that would follow. I simply woke up, opened my eyes and thought, “Dear Lord, please change my life.” Before rolling out of bed, I laughed to myself, thinking of something I heard my pastor say.

"Watch what you pray for, you could get it."

I got it.

My life changed.

I’ve officially joined the league of fallen heroes. Today, I feel like the president and worst ever candidate for a special hall of shame and infamy for people who have made a living on a pedestal, and who have come crashing down. It’s a long fall. My granddaddy would say don’t let people build you up so high, because the same people who put you p there, will kick you down.

Cynical old man. Wise old man.

All I know is that accident changed my life. And today, I am a hero no more.
