Having a hard day?

We all have days when we hope to "just survive" the day. It seems as though anything that anthing that can go wrong does. Well after reading about Shayna Richardson I'm rethinking my definition of a hard day.

Richardson, 21, of Joplin, Mo., was skydiving in Siloam Springs on Oct. 9 when her main parachute failed. "I heard a snap and I started spinning and I didn't know why. I didn't know what to do to fix it. I didn't know how to make it stop," Richardson told Fort Smith, Ark., television station KFSM.

She cut away her primary chute so her reserve could deploy, but it didn't open all the way. She spun out of control, heading straight for the asphalt below.
