    This just happened to me a few weeks ago and I’m still recovering. I knew it wasn’t safe to be a single female walking around downtown after dark, but I was out of options. The bus wasn’t working and I didn’t have the money for a cab. I don’t have friends or family to call that could come get me. I realize /now/ I could have called the cops for a ride home, but I didn’t know then. I was trying to keep to myself, sticking to lit areas and trying to keep track of the cars and people just in case. I was on a deserted street in between an office building and approaching a church. Suddenly, I was struck with this deep dread and everything was telling me to cross the street /immediately/. I sprinted across the street and kept going for quite a few blocks. Now, I hadn’t seen a soul and there wasn’t a car in sight. I made it back to my dorm safe and sound and worked on forgetting that night.
    The next morning, I was at breakfast. There’s usually some news on but I don’t watch until a name caught my attention. They were talking about the same church and how there had been a shooting late the night before. A robbery gone wrong. I was gaping in shock. I think my Guardian Angel or whatever was trying to keep me safe. I don’t like to think about what might have happened if I’d kept walking without warning.
