A medevac rescue worker arrives at a highway accident scene via helicopter, where she finds two cars “crumpled like tin cans.” Doubting whether anyone in the accident could have survived, she finds a couple in one of the cars who are barely alive and are still holding hands. The following shabbat, she cannot stop thinking about the difficulty she had separating them. She reflects on how the woman, a mother of two, survived, and shares how for the rest of life that woman will always have something special in her left hand.
