Here is the plot description for “Charlie St. Cloud”:

Based on an acclaimed novel, “Charlie St. Cloud” is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love.

Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan) as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it.

After his high-school classmate, Tess (Amanda Crew), returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. As he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own.

Near Death Experience

I would change my lifestyle.

Near death experience

After surviving a near death experience, life would be different because it forces you to re-examine yourself. Is that the life you want to live? Some people go the route of changing their life completely: living for the moment, not regretting anything, or doing things they never would have done before. Others insulate themselves in fear of what nearly happened. I would definitely be one of the people who lived in the moment; making sure to tell the people around me that I love them, spending time with my family, and doing things outside of my comfort zone. You never know which day will be your last.

I would change all of the things that made me unhappy to begin with.

Surving a near-death accident

I think I would appreciate life a lot more and make sure to live to the fullest each day I am blessed with. If I survived a near-death accident, this means I am not meant to leave the world yet and there must still be a purpose for me to live. I do not think my life would be drastically different but certainly gain a lot more appreciation and respect to life itself.

The meaning of life would probably change a lot to me.

I did survive

I HAVE survived a near death experience, and to be honest my life hasn’t changed that much. I’ve always been someone who has lived on edge, and after falling off that bridge, I haven’t stopped. I guess it taught me that no matter what life throws at me, it’s my choice to change; and if I let something as small as a thirty foot drop change me, then maybe I don’t know myself as well as I thought I did.

Survive that Near-Death Experience?

Alas, there are no promisary notes for life tomorrow nor day. That’s why the “quality” of one’s life is so important! Always live to your fullest!

I value life constantly &

I value life constantly & consistently. Although, it might take a near death experience to be able to open up my prospective to life more than I already do.
