    Such an amazing, powerful woman! Her example is so inspirational and motivational. I loved reading her book and I love hearing about her. She is incredible!

    I've followed Stephanie's progress since the accident and I must tell you I don't really know how she could have done what she has without the strong testimony she has of Jesus Christ, the love of her husband, her family and the incredible, knowledgeable doctors who took care of her. She is amazing - she is incredible and very brave. I have the deepest respect and regard for her mental strength and physical stamina.

    She has been tested to the limit, and we are lucky to be spared.
    The other day another comment on DN mentioned the misunderstanding some atheists get, by ignoring two facts, we are mortal and God is eternal.

    That got me up on my feet, thinking that this would include trouble of all kinds and things we did not wish for; because it could not be called mortality if we were invulnerable.

    That brings me to Pres. Uchtdorf, when he was talking about an all power god, who could prevent such disaster at will, but often does not, as we can see in this story.

    But what can I learn from this ?

    Looking at the late deaths of Base Jumps and Snow Boarding, and now this story of a plane crash, I studied the possible cause. And I found again, circumstances in life puts us in the position to trust things or people, that we should or could not have.
    We cannot avoid to trust others, but we must learn to deal with this option.
    It could kill us.
    (As to the accident : the possible cause was unrelated to the awareness of the user)
