Recently, I was in an accident while riding my motorcycle. After hitting a pothole, knowing I wasn't going to regain control, I pushed myself from the bike. I landed on my left shoulder and was able to roll out of the way of oncoming traffic.

Two nurses stopped, called 911, assessed me, then called my wife. A couple asked if they could pray with me. Two more gentlemen stopped and moved my bike to the side of the road.

Thank you to all the angels who were with me that day. From my Good Samaritans at the scene, to the amazing medical team at the hospital, to the instructors at ABATE who taught me the skills that probably saved my life.

Finally, and most important, to the Man Upstairs, thank you for sending all these wonderful people my way in my time of need!
