My best friend has a cousin she is very close to and this woman and her family have been a part of my life for over 20 years.

On Sunday her (the cousin's) 20 yr old daughter was waiting for the bus when some VAN came and hit her, pinned her against a fence. She lost a kidney and is in a coma.

Her name is Aleks. So if you can spare a good thought or a prayer for Aleks and her healing and recovery I would really appreciate it.

Thinking of your friend....and you. Take care.

Mostly it's just a silly message board. Except when it isn't.

This is NSBR. Peace is not important to us. We LIKE drama. We seek it out. We create it if need be.
