George Zimmerman Rescues Family From Car Crash

George Zimmerman Rescues Family From Car CrashGeorge Zimmerman, who has not been seen publicly since his acquittal in the murder of Trayvon Martin earlier this month, surfaced last week to rescue an unidentified family trapped in an overturned vehicle on a Florida highway, police said Monday.

‘No reports of injuries’

Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe told Fox News that Zimmerman, 29, was identified by a crash victim as the man who pulled him from the mangled vehicle.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said the single-car accident occurred July 17 at approximately 5:45 pm. and involved a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had left the road and rolled over. The sheriff’s office said there were four occupants inside — two parents and two children. There were no reports of injuries.

‘Death threats’

The deputy responding to the crash said that when he arrived, two men — one of whom was Zimmerman — had already gotten the family out of the overturned vehicle. Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy, the sheriff’s office said. The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and Route 417 in Sanford, police said.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder on July 13 in the killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012. Zimmerman’s parents, meanwhile, have told ABC News that they have received death threats and have been unable to return to their home following the verdict.

With all the death threats and other controversies, would you have stopped to help rescue the family if you were Zimmerman? Do you think George Zimmerman should have been declared guilty in the Trayvon Martin murder case?

What Is Your Greatest Regret?

What Is Your Greatest RegretSeize the day! Live each day as if it were your last! Sounds familiar? These two statements are often echoed whenever we reflect on regrets, opportunities past, and death. At the end of your life, which moment do you think would you regret the most?

‘Fulfilled our life’s purpose’

Those two statements are actually easier said than done. How are we supposed to live today as if it were our last when we are programmed to prepare for tomorrow? Do we really put as much importance into today like think we do? When we are finally on our deathbed, can we look back and honestly say that we have fulfilled our life’s purpose? Or would we simply cry over things that we have not done, words that we have not said, and love that we have not expressed?

A lot of us scramble everyday to clock in more work hours in order to earn more money. It’s understandable when we are barely making ends meet. But in the middle of our workaholic state, we forget to enjoy. Do we wake up each morning for the sole purpose of making a living? How many of us actually LIVE?

‘Take time’

In the throes of stabilizing our career, a lot of us neglect our loved one. Or, the most common reasons — pride, cheating, lack of time — get in the way of our Happily Ever After. Have we exerted enough effort to maintain a happy relationship with our partner? Right now, are we doing enough to make sure we have a healthy love life?

They say your family is your genuine link to the past and the ones who will most likely stick with you in the future. May it be your blood family or special friends that you treat as your own family, they are among the most important people in your life. At the end of your life, will you regret not spending enough time with them?

The toughest thing about regret is that most often than not, you cannot reverse it. You can only wish that you have done something better. So before your list of regrets pile up, take time everyday to take a break, enjoy the smallest things in life, express your love to your partner and to your family, and spend time with the people that you value the most.
