Sometimes, experience is a great teacher but in some critical situations that can determine life, knowledge is a better teacher.

There was a football match between Brazil and Argentina in the Meadowlands in NJ. However, Brazil and Argentina are two countries with the best players and the most anticipated football games in the history of football. As expected, the stadium was packed. However, the game was very exciting.
While we were on the field we trampled on each other, for the second time. I lost hold of my five-year-old and it seemed as if life was running out for me in a very short time. That was part of the experience. Luckily, we met again and I remembered that I had never had a conversation before about “if you get lost in the crowd” before as there had never been a situation in such a crowded place.
Suddenly, we were back in our seats, and I wrote down my cell phone number on his arm. I told her to reach out to an adult (mom is selected) so she could reach out and call me. Also, on the way home, my son used to say my cell phone number and that of my husband.
