Dear Hawkeye,

Like a true optimist, you say, “It can always be worse.”

A miracle survivor; we all need to hear a story or two about miracles, just so we can cling to some sort of life raft. If it has happened, maybe it can happen again?! Besides, this happened to a good person — this makes us also believe in a little more justice in this unjust world.

Thank you for sharing your story.
