EFFECTS OF EXPLOSION OVERCOME
My companions wished to aid me by calling a physician, but I thanked them and told them that I could see enough to go downtown. Two paths lay before me now, and I had to choose between them, one led to a doctor and the other to a Christian Science practitioner. In the first I had no confidence, of the second no knowledge. I finally went to the Christian Science practitioner, which took me some thirty minutes. In less than five minutes after meeting the practitioner, the pain entirely ceased and the swelling and inflammation disappeared. Ten days later every trace of the accident had vanished except that my hair, together with my eyebrows and eyelashes, was missing. Monday morning following the explosion I resumed my lessons, and never missed a class.
Since that time I have had numerous physical needs supplied, but all are trivial compared to the mental benefit I have gained. The elimination of fear and worry, as well as the possession of the beautiful ideals revealed in Christian Science, is something for which I cannot express my appreciation. I am thankful that I live in an age when this power of divine Truth is again being proved as in Jesus' day.
