On the AP Wire today was a story about a man who was shot while being robbed. Instead of being mortally wounded, he threw up his hand and the bullet impacted his wedding band. The ring took enough kinetic energy off of the bullet so that it only lodged in the front part of his neck muscles, rather than traversing the various important structures found in the human neck. His wife gives all of the credit to God.
I hope she gives all the credit to God the next time something weirdly bad happens to her. I’ll give all the credit to blind luck, and a 14 karat wedding band.
