Open Letter to the Strange Man in Dartmouth Who Randomly ‘Blessed’ Gazelle’s Vehicle
Can we have a serious conversation for a minute? I'm in my head and could use some clarity. I wasn't going to bring this up, but it's been a couple of days since something strange happened to me and I need to get it off my chest.
On Sept. 20, I made my way over to my gym in Dartmouth. I was going about my normal business, fighting to find the motivation to get through a cardio session, when the unexpected occurred. The elliptical I was on faced outward toward the parking lot so I could see my SUV clear as day as well as the other cars around me.
Out of nowhere, this older gentleman walked in front of my car, stopped, pulled out a rosary, faced my car and started praying. He had to be in his late 60s or early 70s, and I'd never seen him before.
What was weird was that he only did this to my vehicle before walking off toward Route 6.
What in the world? That's what I thought to myself.
It's been a few days and I'm still trying to process everything that I witnessed. Was this a good or bad omen? That's the crossroads I'm currently at in my mind.
You see, the problem with the world today is that we think the worst. This thinking clouds the fact that perhaps, sometimes, people just try to do nice things for others.
"Watch out for the other guy," my grandfather told me every time I left his house. Of course, he was referring to the drivers on the road.
It makes me wonder if this was some kind of sign or message from above.
Again, these are the thoughts that I've been processing, hoping for answers or anything at all.
At the end of the day, it's probably nothing, but it still makes a person wonder. I'm open to any input so feel free to email me at Gazelle@Fun107.com or shoot Michael and Maddie a message on the free Fun 107 app.
