One time I broke my arm skating in a pool in someone’s backyard in Seattle. It was actually a compound fracture-so my bone was sticking out of my arm. My friend rushed down to the bottom of the pool to check on me as I lay sprawled out face-down-not moving.

She asked me what I wanted/needed, I said, “Please just tell me that everything is going to be okay”.

She said, “Everything’s going to be okay.” A wave of relief rushed over me. Even though I was stuck at the bottom of the pool with a broken arm, I knew everything will be okay.
