"Something" Saved Me

Submitted by: Anonymous

Cortona Guardian Angel - Are There Guardian Angels in Sudbury and Northern OntarioOn a dark but clear night, I was driving home from a friend's house. It was nearly 2 or 3 in the morning, and there weren't very many cars on the road with me. I turned down a long stretch of rural road lined on one side with houses, and the other with lonely fields. 

This road was a familiar route home for me and I was going through the next few turns in my head. Left up here at this street, go for a few blocks, turn right, down the lane and I'm home. I yawned, eager to lay my head down after an evening of fun with friends.

Up ahead, I noticed a shadowy "something" plodding along the side of the road. I slowed, knowing that as I approached, the "something" might bolt in front of me. Sure enough, the "something" veered in front of my car at the last minute, forcing me to stop short. I breathed a sigh of relief that I had not hit whatever it was. 

I pressed on, accelerating a little to reach the left turn that would bring me home. Suddenly, a big pickup truck blew the stop sign and nearly went into the ditch on the other side of the road before righting itself and screeching past me into the night. 

I would have been right in the path of that truck if I had not stopped for the "something". 

I started shaking as it dawned on me that the "something" had probably saved my life. And to this day, I could not tell you what it was... a raccoon? A porcupine? It passed inches from my car in full view of my headlights, but I cannot tell you what it was.

I think that the "something" didn't exist at all, and that it appeared to warn me that night.

It's hard to judge stories like this. Most people brush these things off as an over active imagination, tall tale or wishful thinking.

In out day and age of science and quest to find an answer for everything, we often forget that there are many, many stories similar to this throughout history. 

In days of old, they were often referred to as Guardian Angels or Guardian Spirits. But today, most people have moved on, and no longer believe in such things, and I think that's too bad. Why? Because with our "new found knowledge" comes a cynicism and a lack of faith and hope that someone or something out there is looking out for us. 

Call it naivete, but a little bit of that sense of wonderment and awe might do us a bit more good than the skepticism and loneliness that seems to have replaced it.

Is This Photo Proof That Bigfoot & Humans Share A Common Ancestor?

Bigfoot researchers have long supposed that the legendary cryptid is a primate, and therefore related to modern humans.

Recently discovered photo examinations which originate from Shawnee, Oklahoma may hold an important clue.

William Bradley has long held an interest in Sasquatch. Himself a native of Shawnee, Bradley states that Oklahoma has long been a hot bed of Bigfoot activity.

Bradley claims to have multiple talents which have helped him discover the truth.

When Hunting For Bigfoot, Look Up.
Way up.

Regular readers to ParaNorthern on Facebook or our website know that I am officially a Bigfoot skeptic. Even though I want to believe that a large primate inhabits the considerable wilderness of the North American continent, most of the so called evidence falls into the category of Bollocks. (Ask someone British.)

So when I read recently that some Sasquatch hunters are suggesting that we look to the tree tops for sleeping Bigfoot I laughed out loud. I could not picture something of the supposed mass of of this bipedal cryptid climbing a tree to get a good night's rest.

But then I saw this video.
