Today at 5 PM, two Red line trains collided resulting in several injuries and fatalities. It is the biggest accident in Metro’s 33-year history.
As we learn more of the details, we’ve also heard about some of the miracles that have happened in the midst of this accident.
One of our interns Courtney had one of those miracles happen to her and her dad today:
It was around four o’clock when my dad called me at work to come pick him at the train station. It was a bit unusual since my dad doesn’t call me until 5:30. I picked him up. After I heard about the collision, I called him. He said it was because he had to go to Laurel for something. If not for the trip to Laurel he may have been on the train that collided.
Please share your Metro Miracle story, as our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy.
Farewell to a Friend . . .
You may have gotten to know Angela Stevens from listening to the Morning Show w/ Brennan and Angela. For the years that Angela has been at WGTS, she has helped bring a smile to faces of many of her listeners, sometimes a tear, and a lot of laughter during our afternoon and morning commutes.
She recently announced that she will be moving on from WGTS to pursue to some other interests. Angela shared with me that she has been praying about direction in her life, and feels that God has some exciting plans in store for her. She is thrilled to see where God can use her ministry and talents next. One of the things that she will be working on is exploring her musical talents.
Angela’s energetic, fun loving spirit will be missed very much, but we understand that she is following God’s lead. We’ll be keeping her in our prayers. I hope you will to.
Feel free to share your well wishes with her here
The New Face of Highway Safety??
A student from NC State came up with this clever little sculpture affectionately dubbed the “barrel monster.” Police don’t think it’s so cute and have charged him with larceny for stealing and damaging the traffic barrels. I think they’re missing an awesome opportunity to discover the new face of highway safty! With just the name he could probably save a lot of lives!
Names we’ve come up with:
