Because they survived, I am alive
There's something about a survivor that intrigues me. When I read or hear or watch a story about someone defying the odds, I want to know something more. Like, how did they do it? What made them different? Did they have a strategy? Was it pure luck? Divine intervention? I guess at the heart of the matter, I want to know if I could to do the same thing if I were faced with those same circumstances.
