When Karen Mertes was driving home from work after running some errands on an average Wednesday evening around 7PM, she had no idea that a drunken driver [also high on drugs] was going to ram the back of her car at over 100 MPH.

Karen’s steering and brakes were instantly gone. So were her back tail lights with the impact completely demolishing the entire rear of the car she was driving.

As she sped out of control, in the dark, and passed out behind the wheel from the impact… a miracle must have happened that saved her life that only survivors of unthinkable circumstances can only explain or imagine.

After she regained consciousness, she was still behind the wheel, without brakes, steering, lights.

She had not realized she had suffered a severe head trauma, but started to pray to God to save her life. In return, she would dedicate her life to helping other victims overcome trauma.

By the Grace of God, Karen was on a stretch of highway outside of Tampa, Florida, that was straight and without any overpasses and waterways.

Karen is one of those outstanding people you always admire and secretly hope to emulate in your life. An Officer in the Air Force, a graduate from a top University with two additional Graduate degrees, including an MBA, she is a focused and honorable citizen who does everything in life spectacularly.

Talking with Karen, you would never know that she suffered such an accident. But when you read about her story of recovery, finding forgiveness, and then helping others… you cannot help but be inspired.

I spoke with Karen on March 16, 2013 on Conscious Lifestyles Radio. You may listen to the broadcasted show now on podcast in the ARCHIVES section of this blog.

Check out Karen’s Non-Profit Charitable Organization she established in 2009 to help victims overcome tragedy and restore triumph in their lives:
