Re: Prayers needed

That's terrible. Maybe it's just me getting old, but I seem to read about or hear about more of this sort of mindless violence now than at any previous time. I have no idea why, but if I had to guess, I would guess it's partly the result of the polarization that seems to have infected our society. When you have some moronic WT at a rally--a staged rally in Atlanta, I might add, organized by the Republican party--to support the war in Iraq rant about women who do not shave their arm pits, you know we've got big, big trouble, and right here in River City.

A good friend of mine, Jane Kelly, was attacked and severely beaten
yesterday morning as she jogged along a nature trail in the middle of Cedar

best in the state - but faces a long recovery period and is lucky to be
alive. She needs our prayers. Please add her to any prayer circles you
may be involved in, light a white candle, whatever your particular beliefs
She was beaten only above the neck. How could someone do this to another
human being?
