Elijah Fed By The Ravens


"But then, during the Christmas break of my first year in college, I had an experience that took these considerations to another level. It happened when my brother and I were hunting.... My brother had a crow call and was trying his best to hoodwink some birds into coming close enough so that we could shoot them. Of course it didn't work. The crows stayed their distance -- as they always did.There was another hunter out there too -- though we were unaware of his presence. He didn't know we were there either, hidden in the innards of that uprooted tree in the middle of the field making loud, crow-like noises. When he pointed his rifle at our makeshift blind and squeezed the trigger, I was holding my rifle in my right hand, standing with my weight on my right foot. For no particular reason I shifted my weight to my left foot -- most likely while the bullet was en route -- moving my torso perhaps three inches to the left. I felt the tug at my pocket before I heard the report from the rifle. The bullet tore through my jacket, through the pocket, and through my tee shirt, leaving two small holes in it about an inch apart. It did not touch my skin. Not so much as a nick or a graze. Just made two holes in my tee shirt."
