Corey was just a tired old man who wanted nothing more than to be home for Christmas. He had experienced more than his share of sadness and heartache, during his lifetime, and most of it he would just as soon forget. This train ride home, a train ride that would take him back in time, would cause him to live through it all again, and end with a miracle.
What happened toward the end of this train ride was more than even Corey could believe. Was it some kind of divine intervention, or the lack thereof, that would explain these strange events? Either way, one thing we can be certain of; they did happen. How or why, no one will ever know. This story was inspired by actual events, so you be the judge.
