Angel over my shoulder

Location: N/A

By: Kathleen Young

One Dec. 26th,I was alone in my car, waiting at an intersection and red light at the top of a hill which left me unable to see if there were oncoming cars from the left. When the light turned green I felt a hand on my left shoulder and heard a voice whisper firmly in my ear, "Wait, don't go." I waited, and just then saw a car speed through their red light. If I had gone out in to the intersection at the green, the car surely would have hit me directly on the driver's door. Thank you guardian angel.
