Saw a woman blow through a red light today.  She was older, Hispanic, and driving a van.  It was midday and the sun was shining.

It’s possible she didn’t see the stoplight.  It’s possible she was distracted by something serious.  It’s possible she was in a hurry.

But, she came VERY close to dying.

And, she knew it.  (It would have been someone else’s car hitting her, just for the record.)  She slowed down immediately after going through the intersection.  She looked around.  It was obvious what she was thinking.

As I pulled alongside her vehicle, I saw her do the Sign of the Cross across her chest.

Maybe that stuff does work…
