Grateful To Be Alive

I was so moved by something this missionary said on TV.

CNN interviewed him about what it was like to survive the terrorist attacks that took place in Brussels this week.

I can imagine that if I were G-d-forbid wrapped in head-to-toe bandages for any reason - especially after a monstrous, horrific terrorist attack - I would be very, very angry and depressed.

Squirming with claustrophobia, too. Eating myself alive.

But all I heard from the missionary was: "I am just so grateful to G-d." 

And he meant it. I could tell.

It is amazing how some people have so much faith.

Even when logic says that they should feel hopeless.

I feel very small next to a spiritual giant like this.
