“I remember it like it was yesterday,” said Sarah Burke. “I was on my way home from visiting my sister. She lives pretty deep in the Colorado mountains. Something went wrong with my car. It stopped, and I had no idea why. I was completely stranded, no sign of life anywhere around me, and my cell phone couldn’t get a signal.”
Sarah wasn’t sure what to do. Should she leave her car, and try to find help? Or stay put, and hope someone came driving down the road? She waited for about a half hour. Then, something happened.
“I looked down at the clock on the dashboard, and it was exactly 4:44 in the afternoon. Then, I noticed a receipt on the floor from earlier in the day. The total on that receipt was $4.44. I don’t know why, but I just felt this sense that everything was going to be alright.”
