It was rush hour one moring, and I was walking accross Penn. Avenue NW, DC. I was not paying attention because I had alot on my mind. I just recently divorced, and there father just really not wanting to just be kind to his children. A son getting ready to go to college, and worried about my daughter, my grand child and my mother. It seemed as if everything was coming down on me at one time. I had got to the corner and looked to my left and so that there was no traffic coming towards me, so I stepped off the curve and crossed four lanes. I got to the middle of the median and it never even dawned on me that I never even onced looked up to see if the walk sign was even on. Once I got to the middle of the street I never stopped to look to the right to see if any cars were coming towards me or if I had the walk sign, my mine was truly gone. I got ready to take that step that would put me in the first of four lanes, and I felt something come over me. It seemed as if An Angel or God himself touched my right shoulder and said step back and look to your right. It was as if there was a force that stopped me. When I stepped back and looked to the right, once my right foot went back and I looked up not one but 10 cars were flying down the street at least 40 miles an hour. The wind and the closeness I felt from not just that first initial car was frightfull. I immediatley knew God was watching over me and that I had a purpose in life. I did feel and hear that voice, so calm and angelic. Thank's Be To God and my Guardian Angel.
