My name is Kate Daly and I was the Admission Director at a place called St. Christopher’s Inn in Garrison, New York. It is a drug and alcohol rehab and a homeless shelter for men. I worked there for 13 years and over those years I have heard and seen wonderful acts of kindness, synchronicity and yes, downright acts of the angels. This is one of my favorite stories.
A young man arrived for admission and I went out to greet him. He looked dazed and somewhat overwhelmed, but this was not all that unusual on the first day at the rehab. I was prompted however to ask him if he was ok.
“I’m ok,” he said. “But you won’t believe how I got here!”
“It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.” ~ Buddha
Yesterday, Joy Radio was proud to interview, Don English, author of “Enlightenment of Evil: Murder, Abuse, Transcendence.” Don was born in Munich, Germany, to parents who proudly served in the United States Army. Don has no formal education, but has attended what might be called “The University of Life” and earned a PH.D. in the “Art of Survival.” Don graduated from Cosmetology School in 1971 and has owned a successful unique hair salon since 1978 in Palo Alto, California. Don and his partner, Jim, spend most of their time at Don’s one-of-a-kind secluded beach house perched on a cliff overlooking the Monterey Bay. Both have a dedicated Buddhist practice.
Don English blew the listeners away with his heart-wrenching life’s journey,from hell and back, involving murder, abuse and transcendence. Don shared how after years of harboring the truth, one of his salon customers encouraged him to write about the harrowing experiences he faced as a child. Don explained how he survived years of hell; compared his journey to Jaycee Dugard’s; enlightened the audience on his choice of word “transcendence”; and provided insight into his relationship with his brother, mother and father.
Don’s interview is one you won’t want to miss. Love to hear your comments. And his book, “Enlightenment of Evil: Murder, Abuse, Transcendence” is a “must-have.”

During freshman year of college, Nancy and I were returning late at night to her home from a party. We were both inebriated. I was driving an old loaner car — her Dad’s car was being repaired. I was driving south on I-270, going about 70 mph. She was sitting next to me on the front bench seat.
Right before the Manchester exit, suddenly the right front tire blew! The car immediately began veering towards the guardrail on the right. To avoid a crash, I jerked the wheel to the left. This caused the car to go into a spin, and the centrifugal force threw Nancy across the seat into the passenger door. The door flew open and Nancy was thrown out of the car!! We must have been going at least 50 mph by then!
The car spun around 2 and a half times, forcing me down the seat, almost under the steering wheel. The car came to rest against the guardrail with hardly a bump, sitting on the shoulder of the freeway facing oncoming traffic. Two large tractor trailers whizzed by as I struggled to sit up and look for Nancy. I knew she must have been killed having been thrown out of the car — might have even been run over. I was scared to even look down the highway as I raised my head and peered through the windshield.
She was running towards the car! Not a scratch on her! Not a bruise or a head bump! Ejected at 50+ mph! She said that she had just rolled along the ground. Not only did the angels catch her and save her life, they also helped me to not get arrested when the state police arrived!
Fantastic interview with Jacqueline Maduneme today.
