Default Prayers needed for my friend

Last year, when I had my traffic accident, many of you prayed for my recovery and God answered the prayers. I now ask for more:

One of my friends who worked those extra jobs with me on the freeways, was hit at 3am, Thursday morning, by a DRUNK driver. My friend, Tracy, was in his Chevrolet Tahoe and it was destroyed. The police state the drunk was travelling at 90+ when he hit Tracy from behind, like my accident. Tracy has broken ribs, a broken vertibrae in the the back, and facial injuries, but he is safe and is at home now. Thank God he survived. The drunk driver, however, was pronounced at the scene. Tracy had an overpass closed and the druck was hypnotized by the red and blue lights, just like my drunk was. Pass on prayers for him.

I will keep Tracy in my prayers. Thank God that he survived this horrible accident. Now for a recovery with as little discomfort a possible, and friends and faith to encourage him.

Talk about Deja Vu! It's unbelievable that this scenario should happen again!
Prayers and best wishes go out to Tracy, may he be as lucky as you, and have a full recovery.

Prayers on the way from northern Michigan to Tracy and his family.

As stated above, we all need to remember those who protect us. I just drove home from work in a snowstorm and saw a Michigan State Trooper pulling a car from a ditch. Sure, there was a wrecker there, but the Trooper was right in there helping.

There were also 3 alcohol related snowmobile deaths in Michigan this weekend already. When will people learn? Machines + speed + alcohol are a formula for disaster.

Will continue to send prayers to your friend and please thank him for his service.

Prayers. It is so sad.

When will the drunks stop? A family was killed today, a driver, who has been charged with reckless driving causing death, and refusal to take a breathalizer.........My foster brother, in a wheelchair for life, hit by a drunk driver when his baby was six weeks old. It just never seems o stop.

There is so much so called awareness, but it doesnt seem to really cange anything..........

gain, prayers for healing to Tracy.

Usually the drunks survive the wrecks and the innocent parties don't. My son and son-in-law both are deputies in NC and I worry about them whenever they are on duty.
My thoughts and prayers are for the complete recovery for your friend and his family.

I will send out prayers for Tracy's speedy recovery. I think every time someone is caught drunk driving their car should be taken and sold. The money going to the families of victims of drunk drivers to help paid thier medical bills.

And people wonder why there is so much crime in this country. I am so sorry for you Micheal. That must feel like a slap in the face.

I have never understaod the penalties for crime. It seems you get in more trouble doing silly things than you would for raping a child, killing or seriously hurting some one while drunk etc. My foster brother was hit by a drunk driver and he is now always in a wheelchair. His penalty? Like Michael suspended lisence and probation? What is up with that????

Michael, I'm so sorry to hear this. I will keep Tracy in my prayers. I'm also sorry that the person that hit you got "off" with probation, while you will live the rest of your life, with the results of his actions! It just isn't right!

How is Tracy doing tonight?
What do you suggest to try and get penalties tighter?
Prayers continue.
