An Angel is a messenger of God. Their role is to protect and guide human beings in carrying out the wishes of God. Angels are mentioned in all religions although their role varies according to the different faiths. There is a hierarchy of angels that includes Gabriel, Michael and Raphael who are nearest to God down to the guardian angels assigned to each individual. Even though angels are usually depicted with wings, the bible does not make mention of wings.
This amazing photograph shows the actual profile of an angel on the Gettysburg Battle Field.
According to Wikipedia, a set of Gallup polls, designated towards all Americans, in 1994, 72% of Americans said they believed in angels, while in 2004, 78% of the surveyed Americans indicated belief in angels, with the percentage of Americans that did not believe in angels dropping from 15% to 10%, and the percentage of Americans that were "not sure" dropping from 13% to 11%.
