    The7thSeal....And what exactly is prayer going to do?

    Believe it or not, there is power in prayer. She has two children who are laying up in Duke Hospital right now and 3 others who I'm sure are devastated by this. Not to mention friends and other family members. Prayer gives hope and brings comfort to those who believe in a higher power. Whatever their higher power might be. I know who my higher power is! It really crawls my skin when people make smart comments during tragic events like this! I think I'll pray for you too!

    Hmm, I'm sure this was the accident I saw, but doesn't coincide with what I saw at the scene.

    I went to school with Jennifer. I have not seen her in years. So sad to hear about her death and her two kids being hurt. Praying for her kids and her family.

    It looks like the wreck happened at that big curve on Sherron Rd. A lot of people fly down that road, and the traffic is a lot worse now that they have a couple big neighborhoods off Sharron Rd. I hope we find out more details.
