Not only that, but think about the countless numbers of people whose decisions have had a profound impact on your life, and you will never know it...
For example, the guy who decided to stop to pick up his dry cleaning on the way to work, and because of that, wasn't driving at "full speed" down the highway next to you when he got a flat tire, and because of that, he didn't have a blowout when his tire went flat, and he didn't swerve and hit your car.
Or the lady who, just as she was going to get into her car and drive drunk, changed her mind and called a cab.
Or young adult that was strung out on drugs and would have robbed that convenience store you were in the other day, but his parents saw he had a problem and admitted him into rehab...
There are countless choices - some major, some minor, made by countless people every day, and no way to ever know the ripple effect their choices have.
