A Sign From Above

A Sign From Above

With so many things happening in the world at this time, many people are desperately trying to find something to hold on to or believe in. As the U.S is pushed to the brink of war with Iraq, many are attempting to come to grips with the fact that a nuclear war is extremely possible in the future. Al-Qaeda, through its recent rash of bombings, is sending notice to the world that they are still very much a threat to those who believed they had been vanquished. Unemployment and poverty are spreading as quickly as the devastating HIV/AIDS pandemic in South Africa. Hurricanes and earthquakes are ravaging countries, cities and towns all over the world. Israeli and Palestinian blood is being spilled on sacred land, as millions watch in horror and disgust. Little children are snatched from the comfort of their homes, only to have their tiny, mutilated bodies found in desolate areas after suffering at the hands of a sexual maniac. A demonic sniper is ripping mothers, fathers, and other loved ones away from their families with a single shot. Things are happening. People are scared, frightened and confused, but there is something happening at this time, that is both uncanny and eerie, that may act as a symbol of hope. At a time when we need reminders that life is good, and that goodness will prevail, how fitting is it that the world now has to thrust its attention to the Anaheim Angels. The Angels are expected to go all the way and win the World Series, but millions of people will be rooting for the team, win or lose, because of its religious and supernatural symbolism. For those searching for hope and a sense of calm, the Angels serve as an indication that unseen forces are at work, and that the country, and the world, can be assured that the state of evil that currently exists will not prevail. Many will be supporting the team because they believe in angels…. more than ever.
