|A Statement of Faith|

We went to see Superman Returns last night. The first two minutes were great, the rest was fine as well. We would have seen it earlier but we had other priorities on nights when we had a babysitter.
On the way home we noticed people in the middle of the street and realized there had been an accident and that emergency workers hadn’t arrived yet. My wife is a doctor so I put on my hazard lights and drove up as close as I could. She jumped out and I found a place to park the car.
Once the paramedics arrived and my wife told them the pertinent information we were no longer useful so we left. I reflected on what I would do if I had just been hit by a car, thrown from one side of a large intersection to the other, and was bleeding in the street. I think that I would have accepted a blessing from just about anyone. Even Tom Cruise. But I also have admiration for this man, who at a critical moment in his life, was true to his own beliefs.
