Young Lucas' outlandish ways led him to an experience that would change the rest of his life. On Tuesday, June 12, 1962, he was involved in a terrible auto accident that left him injured and shocked in the hospital. George's father commented on young Lucas' reaction, "He saw his own mortality" (Pollock xvi). You could also say that George found some spirituality in his life. The accident also gave him some clarity about what he wanted to do with his remaining time on this planet, which he learned to appreciate and utilize. It was not just clarity that drove him, it was vision. It was not only a vision of what he wanted to become, it was an image of what he wanted to portray, founded on his new spiritual beliefs. On page 141 of Skywalking, George stated, "I am simply trying to struggle through life; trying to do God's bidding."
