begin to imagine

i just saw a segment on the discovery health channel's trauma: life in the er where a man in his early twenties was admitted to the er after crashing his car into a tree and injuring the c2 and c3 vertebrae in his neck. the attending physican described the injury to the c2 vertebra as a hangman's fracture as the injury is typically seen in hanging victims. the man's spinal cord was injured in the crash.

he will _never_ walk again.

i can't even begin to imagine.

there's nothing in my life that has _ever_ come close.

i can't even.
