An Angel on the Skywalk?


On Christmas Eve 2007, I helped facilitate a Christmas giveaway in the skywalk in Des Moines, Iowa. I had a remarkable encounter with a black man, a stranger. He was unlike any man I had met.

He approached me on the skywalk. By the way he walked and talked, he looked like he'd been drinking.

Then he said, “Well, I might be back.” He seemed to talk simply.
