Letter: Angels do exist

Dear Editor,

When I heard about a 64-year-old woman who needed a car, I asked why and the answer was: Because she needs to live in it. Shocked by the answer, I immediately wondered what can I do to help. I figured I have about 42 names on my email list. I started my email with the word "imagine" and that they did. My angels came through for me. Before I knew it there was some money and a car that was donated which now will be used as this 64-year-old woman's new home. I know now that she is not alone. Where she is planning to park this car, is a park which already serves as a back drop for several other families and individuals living out of their cars.

What I learned from this experience is that "angels do exist" and that I am blessed with a number of them in my life. What I hope your readers will learn from this story is that they too need to surround themselves with good friends and like me; they too should count their blessings each and every day. Because, we never know when things can turn and if someone would care enough to send out an email to 42 of their closest friends on our behalf. These are my angels and that's how I know they exist: Zinat, Jack, Ninva, Shirin, Parvaneh, Ali, Zizi, Hossein, Reza, Roya, Nasser, Farah, Shahab, Abbas.
