Diaspora:How KEMEN President, Anthony Kamnao “Cheated Death” after a gruesome accident
It was an ordinary day just like any other, but I will live to remember this day for the rest of my life.
What Does It Mean to “Cheat Death”?
The phrase “cheat death” is an English language idiom. To cheat death means to avoid death even when death seems very likely or inescapable in the current situation. It is also used when someone has avoided a terrible accident or situation altogether that would very likely have been fatal to that person if he or she had been involved.
For example, if a passenger plane crashes, the passenger who stayed home and missed the flight due to a stomach flu bug has cheated death.
January Friday, 27th was the darkest day of my life, but God saved me on the teeth of death.
Early in the morning, while heading to work and thinking about my birthday, which was supposed to be the next day.
While driving from my house, navigating the roads, to join the highway Interstate 64 (I-64) in St Louis Missouri, i got into a firing accident, involving my car and another driver.
Within a few seconds, my car caught on fire and started burning, God being on my side; the airbag exploded and hit my head, but I started praying so I don’t pass out; trying to open the driver’s door was not successful because it was damaged, moved into the passenger seat which allowed me to escape through the passenger door, God stopped all the cars to let me walk confused to safety beside the road.
After going to the hospital, this accident has helped me start thinking deeply.
Thank you to everyone who has reached out to ask how I am doing.
I have many questions; what can we do to celebrate life, not death? If I died, people could have contributed a lot of money and written or said I was good.
Please give me my life now; celebrate me, not when I am dead.
Let us celebrate life; call someone today and celebrate each other. Please don’t wait until someone is dead to honor. Buy them gifts today, something while they are life.
You must have close friends and people you can run to when in trouble. Take care of me when I am sick, in lack, when I need a place to stay and perhaps start thinking about yourself before one gets incapacitated.
My verse“All your life, no one will be able to hold out against you. In the same way I was with Moses, I’ll be with you. I won’t give up on you; I won’t leave you.” (Joshua 1:5)
Thank you Jesus for your protection and I will serve you forever. I love you Lord
Feel free to reach out to a fellow Diaspora who is still recuperating and processing just what happened and how he got where he is at the moment.
