928: Tell me what I can’t do, and I’ll show you what I can do, by the grace of God
Author: Saad Hamed
The former Marine started his motorcycle ride in the early morning of September 28, 2014, unaware that he was about to embark on a lifelong battle for survival far away from any active war zone. By the grace of God, this man survived what the best trauma doctors in the state deemed almost impossible. This is a testimony to the power of prayer in this otherwise hopeless world.
He was admitted to Cleveland MetroHealth Center with a five percent chance of survival. That means he had a ninety five percent chance of death. Blood soaked the highway alongside the wrecked motorcycle as an ambulance enroute to another accident stopped and transported him to the best trauma hospital in the state. The doctors were amazed that he was still breathing on his own. Author Saad Hamed’s 928: This Day Changed My Life chronicles how this terrible accident became a fateful day for him and the people around him.
The author’s family, who were still shaken from a terrorist attack that took his brother’s life two years prior, maintained a bedside vigil as the days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months. It would have been easy to give up on this father of two, but God has other plans. Not only did he survive, he went on to thrive. God spared him because he has a message for all people of all faiths. A story for the rich, the poor, the advantaged and the disadvantaged. His story is more than inspirational, it’s motivational.
