On Saturday, my husband and I had been downtown and were on the freeway headed home. We came to our exit off the freeway and waited to get onto the street because the light had just turned red. As we were waiting, we saw a man with a sign that read that he needed food or money. The light turned green for traffic that was headed west and suddenly, we saw a car headed west in the far right lane that had hazard lights on and then pull over near the man with the sign. At first, we thought the driver was having car trouble. Then the driver got out, walked around to the back of his car and up to the front passenger side. He motioned for the man with the sign to come to him, and the driver then reached inside the car. He then took out a large plastic sack that had a couple of meals in it and in the other hand was a very large sized drink. The man with the sign dropped his sign and he and the driver embraced. The driver then sat the food and drink down and they hugged again. The light changed for us but I couldn't see it because of the tears flooding my eyes. What made this scene all the more touching was the various physical differences between them. The man with the sign was thin, short, slight of built,ragged, and white. His angel was well over 6 foot tall, financially well off, black, and athletic. Physically different, socioeconomically different and all of that disappeared before our eyes. Yes, I believe angels exist, and I wish certain people I know had been witness to this. Especially LDS leaders.
