Illinois Senator Mark Kirk had an otherworldly experience while recovering from a massive stroke.
Kirk had been taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and was recovering in intensive care when he recalled seeing three 'angels' standing at the foot of his bed. "You want to come with us ?" one of them asked. "No," Kirk replied, "I'll hold off." When questioned about the incident he later commented "a thing goes off in your head that this is the end."
Kirk's experience is similar to those of more than 8 million people in America alone who have reported some form of celestial visitation of near-death experience. Some of the more common things people report include witnessing a bright light or tunnel, a feeling of floating up out of your body and a sense of intense euphoria and peace.
"Illinois Senator Mark Kirk has wrestled with lots of devilish political issues during his 28-year political career, but after suffering a stroke one year ago, he claims he had a very different experience: an encounter with angels."
