He saw the light
by Audrina kress
Last year around the end of September was a horrifying time that ended up bringing everyone together. It was late Friday night after the football game that we won and had an excellent marching show. Our band director always gave us a 30 minute speech after each football game. Well the one he had for that night was odd...he told us to be extra careful and that he had a gut feeling something was going to happen. He was right. His two sons, one a senior the other a freshman, were almost to their house when a drunk driver drove through a red light and slammed into them. The youngest one was knocked out for a couple of minutes but regained conscienceness fast. Luckily some of the school trainers were following behind them and were quick to respond. The drunk driver had already fled the scene but someone had gotten the license plate number. The oldest son was bleeding from his head with the metal from the car encasing his legs and he was unconscious. The athletic trainers had their equiptment with them and went to temperarily help until the hellocopter arrived. Then he was taken to the intensive care unit. Then next day at band was when we all found out what happened the band director informed us and it was also on the daily announcements. The school came together to raise money for the family. Everyday one of the band directors would let us know how he was doing. It had been 2 weeks and he was still in a coma. The doctors told the band director that he has dealt with this kind of situation many times. And only one pulled through. Things were not looking good. Depression had set in within the family. Then one day he came out of the coma and looked his dad in the eyes and cried. He is now alive and healthy. God was there to help. It was a true miricle.
