And the glory of angels was all around. The Bible describes angels as being mediums of God?s power who execute God?s will, revealing themselves to individual humans and sometimes to a whole nation as on the night of Christ?s birth. For Lorraine Watkiss of La Crescenta, the first angel came to her one evening in the midst of great pain, according to her husband, John Watkiss. She witnessed a golden glow on the ceiling of her bedroom. The glow transformed into an angelic face, framed by an elaborate rose petal headdress.

The Angels threatened to put real distance between the teams in the top of the fourth when they started with a single, two walks and a single off David Bywater.

Not everyone has angels. Those who do have paid the price. They pay the price of loss. They pay the price of pain. They pay the price of bereavement. I write this on May 1, 2011. Tonight, Osama bin Laden is dead. The celebration can be somber, or not. There are jokes about Donald Trump. (“He won’t believe Osama bin Laden is dead until he sees the death certificate.”) There are jokes about President Obama. There are jokes about bin Laden. There are phone calls and tweets, posts and emails.

The scorched landscape, burned bare of any signs of life, stretched over 250 square miles. Nothing but charred land dotted with remnants of burnt trees could be seen. The devastated terrain was the result of the Station fire, Los Angeles County's largest-ever wild conflagration, which raged through the Angeles National Forest in August of 2009. Two firefighters were killed, scores of homes were destroyed, and all plant and animal life seemingly was eradicated by the fire's fury. But as La Cañada Flintridge resident and avid bicyclist Michael Caley discovered, nature is resilient.
