Fighting against the darkest side of humanity is one of Raymond C. Simon's greatest accomplishments. As a young criminologist, Ray exposed and helped bring the worst of criminals to justice, and not without great peril. His memoirs reveal how he nearly lost his life at the hands of one such villain, but by the grace of God and what he believes beyond a doubt was his team of angels protecting him, a split-second intervention saved his life. For that and many other instances of phenomenal events, he has created a spectacular life and thrived against all odds.
Ray's exploits include winning a singing contest at the age of five, which led to co-starring with Ethel Barrymore and Edgar Buchanan in his early adolescence. He came face to face with Pretty Boy Floyd. He beat two near-drowning incidents before he was 15, survived a burning Superbomber serving in the Korean War, fortuitously missed boarding an airplane that crashed minutes after take-off, killing all on board, and much more.
Now in his nineties, Ray believes he has survived because of the protection and guidance from the angels that have accompanied him all his life.
Many of us had experienced an inexplicable moment when doom was upon us, and somehow, miraculously, we survived. In Walking with Angels, Ray pays homage to those ethereal beings - angels, the great archangels, spirit guides, saints, and beings of light who know and love us - that, in our desperation, grant us a God-given second chance just when it seems all hope is lost.
"There are numerous times in Ray Simon's full well-lived life where he just could have just given up in defeat, lost his life, or lost his way. Instead, he sensed a miracle that shifted his personal journey back to a path of safety, grace, and love. His encounters will inspire all who read them to open their heart, mind, spirit, and soul to the guidance and protection of the unseen benefactors who walk among us."
