“Struck–A Husband’s Memoir of Trauma and Triumph” Shows the Power of Love, Prayer, & Personal Connections

Doug Segal is author of “Struck–A Husband’s Memoir of Trauma and Triumph”. Seven years ago a horrific accident in LA left Doug’s wife, Susan, with broken bones from head to toe, including a broken neck. It was a miracle she actually survived. Doug’s email updates connected family, friends, and a wide network of others to Susan’s condition, and these were angels Doug says who were instrumental in Susan’s recovery. The story impacted many people. And there is a connection to a Martin Luther King Celebration being held at the Segal’s Temple, that brings together Susan, her daughter, Alice, and a kind “Angel” who helped Alice the day of the accident. This is a great story for any time or season as it really shows the power of love, prayer, and our connection to each other.
