I have the bridge on my mind.
I'm from Minneapolis and I've driven over that bridge hundreds of times. I don't even think of it as 'a bridge over the Mississippi', since we've got a bunch of those. It's just a piece of the Interstate and it happens to have lots of water under it.
This kind of event always makes people stop and think. It truly is a random accident that reaches out and makes us say, "What would have happened if ..."
Have you ever had a life-changing event that made you pause and think about how you're living your life? Has something ever happened to you that made you change direction?
