They say your life flashes before your eyes right before you die, but of one thing I am certain—mine did not. There was no movie reel of memories or quick changing mental images. I didn’t even think in that moment.
Instead, I felt.
I felt peace and finality, and a sweet release from my ever consuming guilt. So, no, I didn’t see my life flash before my eyes before I died, and for that - I was grateful.
