“I should have been killed in that suicide bombing. I used to take that bus every day to the gym, but that day, I got off four stops early because I realized I had forgotten my gym bag. I knew they wouldn’t let me in without my towel, so I went back home to get it. What I couldn’t know was that a suicide bomber named Al Ra’Al would get on at the next stop wearing an explosive belt and blow himself up, taking the lives of nineteen people with him. It was only when I passed by on the next bus and saw the blackened shell of the number 32a, still burning, that I realized how easily that could have been me in there. We don’t always know what God has in store for us, but I know that it wasn’t an accident that I forgot my gym bag, and now I’ve dedicated my life to becoming worthy of that miracle”.
