I don't normally make requests here...

... but today, I'm going to.

One of my BACA brothers in Ohio was involved in an "accident" the other day. I use the quotes because of what, exactly, happened.

He was run over on his scoot from behind by a semi.

Yes, y'all read that right: a semi driver ran my brother over. Worse, he kept right on going.


While the police in this case try to find the driver, my brother is in the hospital. He's already had surgery on his face, he's healing a lacerated liver (not sure about other internal injuries), they still have to set 8 fractures in his right arm, and he may loose his right leg at the knee.

While my brother deals with this, the police (as of the last time I called for an update from a sister on scene) are spinning their wheels. As usual in today's society, nobody saw nuthin', it seems...

I don't normally ask for people's prayers: always sounds cheesy to me. But he needs all the help he can get.

Done and done.

Hopefully you don't have a problem with multi-denominational prayers, cause at the moment I've added to my uncles (Baptist ministers) church prayer chains, my mother's Free Methodist, a good friends Wiccan, and a cousin over at the Buddist temple.

A few atheists thinking good thoughts too.

*I* don't care if people are praying to the Great Kumquat, s'long's there's good energy being sent... ;)

Prayers and good thoughts being sent to your brother, Strings.

And a burning rage inside at the bastard who did this.

If I *ever* witnessed something like this, the truck driver had better pray the cops get to him first.

I would honestly be torn between calling the cops on him immediately or waiting until he stopped, beating him to within an inch of his life, then calling the cops on him...

I'll rattle the old Rosary beads and ask JPII for a favor or two.
