Inches in time

Dale (my husband) was on a business trip yesterday and stayed the night in the area where he was traveling to for training. On his way to his hotel yesterday evening he was driving down a road that was fairly dark. As he drove he passed a couple that seemed to be out for an evening walk together.

Today when he woke and read the local paper he saw that a husband (25) and wife (26) were killed on the same road about 15 min. after he passed through by a 19 year old drunk driver.

If Dale had left his aunt's house 15-20 min. later he may have been in an accident caused by that same drunk driver. In the span of life 15 min is barely the blink of an eye, less than an inch on the time line of life. His life was spared by inches.
