Morgan Lake was having a normal day. The sun was setting, and she was driving home on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The 22-year-old communications student slowed her car down on the bridge because of a bridge toll.
All of a sudden, everything changed.
A giant tractor truck didn't see all of the other cars slowing down and didn't stop. The truck rammed into Lake's car, pushing her toward the bridge wall. She told Fox News she prayed for her car to slow down. She prayed to not go overboard.
She was then able to break free from her seatbelt and climb out the car window. She had just enough energy to swim to the shore, where people were waiting to help.
Her trial was literally a bridge over troubled waters. And Morgan miraculously calmed down and found a way out of her car.
Maybe you're not religious, but each of us have miracles happen in our lives each day without us even realizing it. Do you consider your health a miracle? What about your children? Each person has his or her own experiences with miracles and inspiring events. What stories do you have?
