A Flock of Angels

Going on with life seemed pointless. What did I have left to live for? I’d lost everything; my home, my wife and children, all because a drunk driver had ploughed through our living room while I was at work.
My mind would not shake that horrible image. Coming home to find my yard fenced off with crime scene tape, officers held me back as tiny black body bags were wheeled out to a waiting ambulance. All I could think of was killing the bastard who’d robbed me of my happiness, but he was safely behind bars.
Now I was simply living on autopilot, continuing my life purely by instinct and habit. Stepping inside the bustling supermarket, I noticed an old lady watching me sadly. I looked at her questioningly.
‘You must be in terrible pain,’ she whispered.
‘How do you know?’ I demanded.
‘A flock of angels walk behind you.’
