  1. Quite a good way to describe a life changing experience of significant proportion. In my case, after an early experience of the 1930s and then WW2, joining the mob had that affect for me. There must be many dits on the RTD category, some amusing and some not amusing, care to share anyone?


    From the biblical story of the Apostle Paul, a Damascus Road Conversion refers to an abrupt about-face on a serious issue of religion, politics, or philosophy. A single, dramatic event causes a person to be aligned with something they previously found anathema. For example, someone might experience a Damascus Road Conversion if they were protesting against an effort to convert parking lots to a neighborhood park; yet after listening to a city council meeting to discuss the plan, they become a spokesperson for the park.
