No right-thinking man would dare to challenge such true statement; isn’t it? As disaster often has a way of choosing its dastard moments; so it did that faithful day, at that most unfortunate scene. What happened? A ghastly accident took place at a certain spot.
It was as grievous as anyone could imagine. But at the very point of dying, help came the way of one of the accident victims. Swiftly, a good Samaritan whisked him away in his own car to the nearest hospital.
In the course of their journey, the accident victim who had just 30 minutes to live kept asking a rather strange question. Instead of asking his helper: how far do we have to go? He rather ceaselessly requested: ‘how much time have we got, how much time have we got’?
