For Cindy
« on: December 08, 2009, 05:14:17 PM »
My coworker Cindy was involved in a car accident this morning as she drove to work.  She is currently in surgery but she is not expected to survive due to her injuries.

Oh!  How sad!

Lord, have mercy on her and those who love her.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Just wanted to give an update:  Cindy made it through surgery but is still in very serious condition.  Her neck was broken in the accident so she may have to stay on a ventilator.  She was able to move her hand a little but the doctors are not sure if that was voluntary movement.  In any case, thank you so much for your prayers and please continue to pray for her.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
