John O’Leary explains how his mother taught him that sometimes the best way to answer a question is with another question.

Shortly after being terribly burned in an explosion when he was 9 years old, John’s mother came to the emergency room to see her son.

John asked his mother, “Mom, am I going to die?”

Instead of just telling him everything was going to be OK, she asked him a question: “John, do you want to die?” she said. “It’s your choice, babe, it’s not mine.”

Her question served as a bold reminder for John. Listen to him tell this powerful story.
