lets all send one up...

So I was totally going to use this post to go IN on the certified dumbass park rangers in Washington's Olympic National Park that encouraged the teasing and ABUSE of a mountain goat until the animal couldn't take it anymore. And ultimately, the it retaliated by GORING a innocent hiker (who had nothing to do with the years of throwing bean bags at the wild animal) to death.

But instead, I'm going to use all my energy to pray for Rutgers University defensive tackle Eric LeGrand.

This past Saturday, the 20 year-old got hit during a routine play in the game against Army and suffered an injury to the C-3 and C-4 level of his spine. He has been paralyzed from the neck down ever since. While doctors are still not sure if it's bruise or a complete break, the recovery from this is going to be long and challenging.

I shudder to imagine the terror that this promising young man and his family are experiencing at this very moment.

May God hear all our prayers for his speedy return to health.
