In the age of technology, Apple is finding ways to turn the iPhone into a safety tool that could potentially save your life. But I don’t think they intended it to work the way it did when it saved a woman’s life during the Las Vegas shooting.

An unidentified woman told her taxi driver that her iPhone happened to be between her and a bullet when the attack began. The taxi driver was so impressed that he took a picture of the phone.

No details have yet emerged about where the woman had her phone when it saved her during the attack, but it is assumed she was trying to flee at the time it happened.

So I guess your iPhone really is good for more than just Tinder and Snapchat. I’m definitely not going to leave the house without mine anymore. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
