freaky story

all things happen to you for a reason but sometimes it's a little bit harder to find the reason than other times.
take what happened to me yesterday.
i was waiting in line for my bus at the bus terminal yesterday, listening to my ipod when i see a man walking towards the outside door, from where all the buses are, not really where people usually come from. i didn't think anything of it until he comes close to the door coming into the terminal. i see his hands are covered in blood and he's got a gash on his face, still bleeding. he was an older white man, probably about 60.  mind you, there are about 25 people waiting in line and everyone's just in shock. they don't know what to do. the man has a hard time getting the door opened and someone finally opens it for him. he keeps walking past the line of people (everyone's just staring at him) until one guy asks, "are you alright, sir?" the man responds "yes" and continues walking. now i'm listening to my ipod and can't really hear that much (and i don't really want to usually) but a few minutes later i heard a yell and the lady standing next to me screams! apparently the man fell down the steps. the guy who had asked him if he was okay runs down to help him. a few minutes later, the man who had gone to help comes back and says that someone called 911 and there are people down there helping him.

i was so freaked out. the entire bus ride i couldn't get it out of my head. obviously there was something wrong with the guy or someone had really hurt him badly.
there must be a reason why i had to see such a thing. but its so freaky. and then i came home and heard what had happened to my friend's brother-in-law and all in all, it was just a crazy day.

That does sound freaky. Perhaps the lesson is that people should be more caring of the problems of the world going on around them.

That is freaky, sorry you had to witness that.
