    My good friend and house keeper who I have known and shared our childrens births with was stabbed the other day by gang member for trying to stop a man from hurting a 16 year old girl. When she approached him (from the neighborhood) and asked him to leve the girl (who she also knows a bit) alone he attacked her, her husband immediatly jumped in as a 1/2 dozen gangsters started stabbing. My Girlfrind will be ok luckily her stab wound in her stomach was off to the side and did not do much damage, but Hector her husband is very badly hurt having been stabbed in the gut as well and in critical condition. These are very good people, some of the best I know and as I spoke with her I could see the very real fear in her eyes, the same fear I know only too well, and I DONT want her to end up like me.

    I am reaching out to those I know to make sure he gets the best possible care and just took her back to the hospital to be with him.

    If you folks feel like praying please pray for Hector as he needs to heal and not get an infecton in order to survive.

    Definitely sending prayers. There is no excuse for that kind of violence. Hope everything is ok and that those SOB's get what they deserve.
