When I was 8 years old, my dad was in a major car accident where he was lying unconscious in the middle of an intersection where our car had been hit by a lady that was drunk driving. For the next 3 years, my dad had been in and out of the hospital with many serious injuries including a broken neck, concussion, vision loss, and other things. Because of his injuries, my dad lost his job. Because of the car accident, we could have lost our home. Luckily, we were blessed with a few miracles and did not lose our home.
When Frida Kahlo was only eighteen years old when she got into a terrible bus accident. The bus hit a turning street car causing them to crash which resulted in a metal handrail to impale Kahlo through the abdomen and out her genitals. She suffered a copious amount of injuries including: breaking multiple ribs, shattering her spine in three places, shattering her pelvis, breaking many bones in her right leg, and breaking her collarbone. It took her two years to recover, but she still was not fully recovered after that accident. That accident is the inspiration for The Broken Column or La Columna Rota.
