In 1972 I was 23, I had car trouble on I-5 in Seattle Wa. I pulled over to the shoulder and since it was 3am I decided to sleep in the back seat until daylight. I was fast asleep and heard a tapping sound, I woke up to a flashlite shinning in my face and a voice said what are you doing here? I told the State trooper my problem and he said it was not a good idea to sleep in a parked car on this busy freeway (speed limit then was 70) so he gave me a ride to the next exit and so I could call someone for help. When I got back to where my car was it was gone. I found out my car was at the tow yard, when I got there they showed me my car and I almost fainted, someone had fallen asleep on the freeway doing 70 and rear ended my car. I never did find out that trooper's name but that night he saved my life.


Did blind chance know that there was light and what was its refraction, and fit the eyes of all creatures after the most curious manner to make use of it? These and other suchlike considerations, always have, and always will prevail with mankind, to believe that there is a Being who made all things, who has all things in his power, and who is therefore to be feared. -- Isaac Newton
