its 1:48am...so basically its sunday morning...this is prob not the forum to post this but well i am at wits end. not to mention that i have ... well anyway...
all i ask is for the support and prayers of anyone that can pray for one of my best friends.
i got a call today, actually about 12 missed calls before i found out that one of my best friends in the entire world had been abducted at gunpoint and driven for an hour, after emptying her atm machine, and left in the woods, only to be raped by 2 men after it was all said and done.
my addiction has never been food, but well, lets just say without her i wouldnt probably be alive today. i only can hope and pray that i have 1/2 the light she had for me in my darkest hours...anyway i am struggling to even type the words correctly...i have had way too many drinks to try and cope...its something i cant handle..i feel like it was me....please pray for my dear friend.

Holy Cow. That is horrible. I am praying as I type. I sincerely pray that you and your friend get help immediately, and that those creeps are thrown in the slammer for the rest of their lives. I am so sorry. :(
That's really awful, I hope that she comes through this OK and that you have the strength to support her through this. I'll be thinking of you.

It is impossible to imagine what your friend has suffered. I am glad she has friends like you to support her and help her through this. I will be thinking of her and hoping that she does not continue to suffer any more than she has already.
I certainly hope that the 'people' (if you even want to include them in the human race) involved are caught and prosecuted to the FULL extent of the law. Please let us know how she is going.
My thoughts are with you and your friend.
Prayers for you and your dear friend. :hug:

I'm so sorry, hon. :( I will certainly keep your friend and YOU in my prayers. :hug:

I will certainly pray for you and your friend. Just love her!
03-05-2006, 11:14 AM
That is some awful news. Take care of yourself and I will keep you both in my thoughts.

i just got off the phone with her.
she sounds surprisingly good, and she told me how it all happened. its something like you would see in a movie. a long drawn out ride through the streets of town, blindfolded, not being able to do anything...but do as they say, which she did. she said she stayed calm ... robbery was the initial motive and they got that...the other was an afterthought...they still havent found her car and i sure that there will be prints and that they will be caught. i know these guys have to be in the system, and because of that will be found.
thank you all for your kind thoughts. its been a rough 24 hours, and now i have the hangover from ****....

I am so sorry for what happened to your friend. I hope they catch those creeps and send them away for...well forever would be really nice wouldn't it? But how often does that happen? Hopefully for a really long time...Evil is among us. She is fortunate to have caring people like you in her life. I hope and pray for strength and courage for her in the months and years ahead. Did she go to the ER? I hope so but so many women don't....
03-05-2006, 12:28 PM
Big hugs for you and your friend. Isn't it amazing how terrible people can be? I hope they are caught, and that justice is swift.

oh yes...she was taken directly there by some woman who stopped along the road when she found her way out of the woods.
she was even on the phone with someone at the time of the abduction and the guys never turned the phone off...so the person on the other end, called the police immediately and the helicopters were looking and everything. unfortunately the person on the other end thought that my friend had just left work so they were looking in the wrong part of town....i think that if my friend would have known that the girl could hear everything that was going on, my friend could have given verbal directions as to kinda maybe what part of town they were in. being blindfolded she didnt know much but she knew enough ya know?
i KNOW they are going to catch them...i just wish they could find the car already...

My heart goes out to you and your friend. You both are, and will be in my prayers. I thank God that she seems to be doing as well as can be expected.
May love surround you both at this time.

I'm so sorry to hear about what has happened to your friend. I hope it won't be long before the perpetrators are caught.
03-05-2006, 02:25 PM
I am really sorry to hear what happened to your friend. I am glad she is doing better. I will pray for your friend, and hope that those monsters would get caught, and suffer for rest of their lives for what they've done. Again, I am very sorry, and hope you're doing okay.
03-05-2006, 02:38 PM
In the darkest moments at least there is some light - your friend is alive and OK, which easily could not have been the case. I do hope that the perpetrators are caught and brought to justice and that your friend can find healing from this terrible ordeal.
03-05-2006, 02:55 PM
You are both in our prayers!
03-05-2006, 03:02 PM
I am so sorry about what happened to your friend. You are both so lucky to have your friendship, and to be strong for each other. I will keep you in my heart & my thoughts.
03-05-2006, 04:14 PM
You are both in my thoughts. (((hugs)))
03-05-2006, 05:57 PM
I'm so sorry, that's terrible... :hug: I will be thinking of you both as well.
03-05-2006, 08:23 PM
Oh my goodness what a terrible thing to happen, I hope she is ok! We are lving in such a dark age :(

June....My thoughts and Prays are with you and your friend...I hope she is better soon.........Huggs

Keep your fingers and toes crossed! I just got word that they apprehended two guys in her vehicle around 4am. Shes on her way downtown to ID them (if she can)...apparently they are juveniles and can only hold them for like 6 hours?? What the ****?? Anyway I am praying its them and that she did get enough of a good look at them to ID them. Then theres always DNA if one of them was the one that raped her. You see she was blindfolded almost the whole time, and well when they did take her blindfold off she was careful not to look at them....ugh....but she DID see them when they were approaching her.

June, I am soooooo sorry for your friend. It sounds like she was lucky to escape with her life, she is also lucky that she has such a good friend in you. Hopefully the trash that did this to her will be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Many hugs to you and your friend. :hug:
03-07-2006, 02:17 PM
well it wasnt them..but i had a feeling it wouldnt be. but at least now they have the vehicle and 2 people that KNOW something...
03-07-2006, 03:56 PM
What a nightmare!!!
I really hope your friend will recover from this without too much damage. I know everybody’s thoughts right now are all about catching the *******s that hurt her, but in the long run she will need your help to recover emotionally. My thoughts are with both of you :hug: and keep us posted.
03-07-2006, 04:19 PM
i'm so glad you posted this here. i stopped right after i read your post and immediately prayed for your friend and for you. i pray that you both will have the strength to make it thru this. that you both know that God is there with you no matter how bad it may be. he has not deserted you two at all. he is there to carry you through this. i will definately keep you both in my prayers and thoughts.
thank you so much for sharing this with us. that is what we are all here for. support of any type. big hugs go out to you both.
Wow, I remember watching the news either Saturday night or Sunday and seeing that a woman had been abducted from Greenway Plaza, but at that time they could only say that there was a 'possible' sexual assault. I'm glad to hear that she seems to be in a good frame of mind. Please pass along our support to her...
