So this sad and untimely death of Josh Hancock got me thinking about predetermination. Basically (and not trying to sound crude) but when your number is up, is it up?
If Josh was still with the Reds would be still be alive? Or was today his day to die? He would have been in Pittsburgh with the Reds and not driving himself. Maybe he would have been in a cab and it wrecked.
And what about Lidle? If he had been with the Reds he wouldn't have been flying a plane that day in NYC. Or would he have crashed out of some municipal airport in KY.
So did these deaths happen due to a long string of events, or was it just the day they were set to die?
I can think of a couple close calls I probably shouldn't have survived. Was it luck or fate that spared me?
