A grateful Cassandra
On the Palisades Parkway, traffic slowed ahead of her. She moved into the passing lane and suddenly felt the wheel move under her hands. Within seconds that felt like minutes, the car spun around and hit the guardrail on the right, spun back into the Parkway and came to rest on the opposite guardrail facing into traffic.
When we arrived at the scene minutes later, she was standing next to her car, so tall and strong and beautiful. I gasped at the sight of her, knowing well it could have been otherwise, so grateful to see her again.
