Angels everywhere

Resident pays credit to those who help others in the community

I don’t believe in the literal concept of heaven and hell but can certainly relate to the metaphorical concept of it.

Some would say that hell is right here on Earth and working in the hospital. I can see how some people feel that life on Earth is hell.

The pain that some people go through can be just too much to bear.

However, I do see angels everywhere.

I saw a few just recently.

Pat, down at animal control, took in dogs for a woman admitted to hospital.

Maggie works at the homeless prevention program as an angel every day. There’s Grace, the chaplain at the hospital, and Ray, down at the Salvation Army.

There are thousands of them out there disguised as regular people but they are the angels among us.

So when you’re feeling down, just remember that there are angels everywhere to help you. And if you can’t find one, be one
