This is a phrase I’ve heard a lot in the last week or so. Folks who escaped death in the 35W bridge collapse have been saying (well, some of them have) that they feel that their life must have some purpose since they were spared while others died. What does everybody think of this? If it’s true, where does that leave the folks who died?
This isn’t intended to be hostile or accusatory; I’m just curious whether others think this is true and how it works in their lives if it is.
