10,000 angels

   Posted by: arcanai   in family time, prayers needed

…were certainly surrounding a family member this past weekend.  thanks to the wonders of fb, we heard about this saturday morning and we were shocked.  one of hubby’s cousins was driving home to visit family for the weekend last friday and ended up having the biggest scare of his life thanks to a sociopath who apparently doesn’t deal well with road construction.  he was shot at while driving down i-75.  the bullet hole was inches behind his head.  and judging by the angle of the hole, the man was mere milliseconds or centimeters off on his shot.  either way, my cousin-in-law escaped a potentially fatal incident by a much smaller margin than anyone wants to contemplate.  for the sake of his children… for the sake of his wife (who has already been widowed once and was in the seat next to him)… for the sake of the family… i am so thankful that we are not burying another far-too-young friend/loved one.  thankfully, they are both uninjured.  although i’m sure it will take some time for the memory of it to fade.

the good news is that both the man and his wife, who was driving, are in jail.  these upstanding citizens with no registration, no insurance, and no drivers license, are being charged with two counts of attempted first-degree-murder and facilitation of a felony, respectively. 

for more, news video and article about the incident.  cousin-in-law was clearly still on an adrenaline rush when he was interviewed in the video.  i just can’t imagine.  at least during my frightful gun experience, it was never actually fired.
