How many times do we see articles in the paper, see news reports on TV about rape; how do we react; is there a moment of instant revulsion, sadness, anger, compassion and then quickly move on, forget about it, don’t dwell on it.   You kind of have to or your mind becomes so overwhelmed with what that victim must be going through.

It is usually most every woman’s worst nightmare. 

This happened to someone I know recently, in the worst ways possible.  She is still recovering and will need reconstructive surgery for the damage he did to her when he brutally assaulted her.  A complete stranger broke into her home and did this.  For any of you who are reading this and are praying people, I request that you stop right now and say a prayer for this person for me, pray for her recovery, pray for her life, pray for her marriage, pray for her husband that he might be given the wisdom to know how to be the best for her during her recovery. 


What evilness there is in this world.
