Accident—What's Your Reaction?

Do we accept an accident as something going on "over there" and rejoice that we were not involved? When we are driving along the road and hear a siren, do we shudder and hope we don't have to witness anything unpleasant? Or do we alertly and instantly establish in thought the harmony and control of God's universe, knowing that right where error is claiming an effect—right there—is God, the only cause, in complete control of His own idea?

As the mother of four boys I needed to be clear in my thought on the subject of accidents. At every stage of their experience there was the fear of accident to be dealt with. Sometimes an accident occurred, but always the problem was quickly met through Christian Science. And of course, in countless ways our family was protected and mishaps were prevented.
