People Who Should Be Dead Share Their Stories

Life is full of close encounters.

Do believe in fate? Or are you a stronger believer in chance? Depending on your beliefs, you might think that everything happens for a reason, or otherwise that you are very lucky to be right here, right now.

If you’ve ever seen any of the Final Destination movies, you know just how close we all are from death at any given moment. Positive phrases like “Live every day like it’s your last” remind us of this same concept, albeit more positive when you see it printed on a wooden sign in someone’s TV room.

Realistically, we live our lives based on a tacit trust that everybody we come in contact (whether or not we know it) does their job to make sure no one gets hurt. Think about it: other drivers on the road, construction workers in cranes above us, people in charge of cleaning and packaging our food and drinks… the list goes on. One slip up from any of these people — not to mention the dozens or thousands we pass on a daily basis — could mean the end for us.

Have you ever had a near-death experience? People who should be dead shared their stories, and they just might make you a little more grateful.
