    My DD, who goes to NIU, just called to tell me that two of the fraternities on NIU Fraternity row are on fire. It is really bad, and at least two helicoptors have medivaced people out.

    NIU is the school that had the shooting on Valentines day 2008, and now this.

    My DD is waiting to find out if she has lost more friends today. She is only 21 but has seen enough heartbreak while at this university.

    Please send prayers that no one perishes in this terrible blaze, and that the survivors of NIU can overcome yet another tragedy.

    Thank you,
