One of my friends, Heather Richardson, was in a ski accident during the course of last week. She has suffered a fracture skull and shoulder. I learned about it from the teachers today at school, and of course, they are very skimpy on the details. She wasn't my closest friend, and neither was I to her. But we were friends. We were in the same karate class together for 7 years. This is really hard on me. Whats harder is that her best friend, who's one of my friends (at least I think. We fight almost all the time.) doesn't believe that I care for her. She thinks I just want to talk gossip, and thats not the case. She's also convinced men just don't care about emotions, and I'm pouring my heart out about this. I guess I'm rambling now, but I'm nearly reduced to tears over this. It's not that I thought it couldn't happen, its more of how it hit someone so close to me. So please, keep her in her prayers, or whatever sort of ritual you practice.
