Have you ever been awakened in the middle of the night by someone banging on your door yelling loudly, “Are you okay, are you okay?” This was a first for me.

After a brief apologetic explanation she returned to her home, assured that I was safe. I went back to bed and lay wide awake until I rose at morning light.
