One night, while driving home from a friend's house, I experienced something very strange. It was late, dark and the car behind me was too close for comfort. I was starting to get irritated. Why was this person "riding my tail?" As we were approaching a light to a big highway, the car behind me was turing right and I was going straight. The light was green, so I kept going. As the person pulled up next to me to turn, I tried to give them a "dirty look" and something made my foot hit the break. Without even being aware of it. As this happened, I turned my head forward, I saw a faint white glow and then a car ran the red light. If something hadn't made me hit the break, I would've gotten in a serious car wreck that could've cost me my life. I believe that the white glow was an angel, and he she saved my life that night.
