Can courage cause a miracle?

Josie Paille suffered a vein occlusion when she was 16 and lost her vision in one eye. She adjusted for it and most folks never knew about it. But years later, doctors diagnosed he same problem in her remaining eye, and said she would become blind. She was heartbroken about this, when her brother suggested she create a visual memory so strong that she'd be able to recall it in her "mind's eye" forever. She should go sky-diving.

As soon as she jumped from the plane, she was sure she'd die. Then suddenly she felt a popping behind her eye. It really hurt, but her instructor dismissed it as ears popping from air pressure. As he released her parachute, she felt a sense of calm and relief, and the next morning when she woke up, she could see through both eyes. A doctor confirmed the blockage had stopped. Some doctors believe the air pressure may have released the blockage and restored her sight. She feels it was a miracle.
