My story occurred 15 years ago in downtown San Francisco. Imagine, if you will, any busy city street. All the sidewalks were lined with parked cars and the traffic was busily racing up and down the streets. As I walked along with my walkman radio, I was not paying attention to all that is going on around me. Some would say this is typical of a late teenager. I stepped off the curb at 5th and Market. Just as I came to the end of the parked car, a hand pressed against my chest. Quickly, I turned right with a scowl to see who had dared to touch me, but no one was on my right. As I turned quickly to my left, all that was there was the front edge of a parked car. It was in that instant that the pale white face of the truck driver caught my eye. His glare was fixed upon me as his truck blasted past and through the intersection at 30-35 miles an hour. In the very instant it took me to look right and then left, my stride would have placed me directly in front of this bobtail truck. I would be dead. I watched in disbelief as the light turned green and the people across the street began to cross. By the time I was ready to step onto the other curb, I knew what had happened. The hand of something unseen had saved me.
A guardian Angel had reached out to spare my life. Of this I have NO doubt. I thank the heavens for that day and pray other may find the same grace as i did that afternoon.
