Okay guys, I really need your help
« on: March 14, 2013, 11:12:22 PM »
The following posted with Fr. George's administrative approval  -PtA


My girlfriend Erin has the same genetic bone condition that I have (osteogenesis imperfecta) and she is in this contest where, if she gets enough votes, she will get a vehicle that is fully modified which would allow her to drive for the first time in her life. Obviously, that would be wonderful because it would give her a level of independence that she has never had before. Plus, she is planning on moving here sometime this year and desperately needs a vehicle that she can drive herself in, not only to get around here, but also to make trips back to Indiana to be with her family. If you could, please click the link below and take the time to vote for her. You can vote again every 24 hours as well. Also, if any of you could share this link on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social networking sites that you use we would really appreciate it. I will also put a link in my signature for the duration of the contest to make it easier for those of you who are able to vote again each day. This is very important to us and would drastically improve her life and independence, so any help you all can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

In order to win, Erin has to have the most votes in her region. We are not sure how big of an area constitutes a region, however. Erin lives in Indiana, and I looked over the Indiana contestants and right now there are 4 people in Indiana that are ahead of Erin.

O.K.

God bless!
There are heathens that live with more virtue than I. The devil himself believes Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Neither of these things truly makes me Christian.
