  • When I was 15, my dad was wrestling in Nashville, Tennessee. I moved with him,

  • and when my mom finally arrived in Nashville,

  • she'd just driven all the way across country from California

  • and I knew that my parents were going through some really tough times in terms of their marriage.

  • And it was... it was... that was a tough day and I'll never forget it.

  • It was probably about one o'clock in the afternoon,

  • we were at a restaurant, three of us.

  • And they... they got into it...they got into a very big fight.

  • Not physical... but just really loud arguing.

  • And my dad had a car that time and so they got into that car.

  • My dad was driving, my mom was in the passenger seat,

  • and I get in the car that my mom just drove, the family car,

  • and I start driving, I already have my license at that time at 15.

  • And we're driving down I-65... I-65 was a major in a state that runs through Tennessee,

  • and I'm watching them right in front of me and their car starts swerving and I can

  • clearly see that they are arguing.

  • My old man makes a hard right and he gets on the shoulder and the gravel road.

  • My mom gets out of the car and when she got out of the car,

  • I'll never forget as she had a glazed look over her eyes and I had never seen before.

  • And she walked right into the middle of I-65 and continues to walk down into oncoming traffic.

  • And my heart stopped, horns were blowing and cars were swerving out the way.

  • 18-wheelers were swerving out the way and I got out the car and I grabbed her

  • and wrestled her over to the side of the road.

  • I don't remember what I said to her. I remember she didn't say a thing.

  • And in that moment one of the greatest lessons I've ever learned was how precious life is

  • and how in an instant, it can all go away.

  • Change me.

  • The irony is my mom has no idea that it even happened.

  • That's the irony, that's also the beauty of it. She does not remember anything. Thank God.

  • 'Cause maybe it's too traumatic to remember.
