Getting rear-ended: how to react?

This morning I got rear-ended on a busy street on my way to work. No damage to my car, which is agood thing, since the guy who hit me couldn't be bothered to much else besides yell out his window: "It's fine! It didn't do anything!"

Then, as I tried to merge back into traffic, the older couple (70s?) in the truck next to me FLIPPED ME OFF and refused to let me back in. Wow. Thanks.

With my chai latte now all over my front seat, a sore neck and an aggravated attitude, I finally got going again. Snarling. Churlish. I wasn't feeling at all nice. Then, just as a "gentle" reminder, from my radio came:

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, and I have been set free
“Amazing Grace” is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it’s true
Just take a look at my life
What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King-
Matthew West


And with that subtle reminder, I put a smile on my face and got myself to work. Your day is what you make it.
