On a Personal Note...

This is nothing to do with music, but I wanted to say something about a tragedy that happened over the weekend, mainly because it involved some girls from my alma mater, Georgia Southern University, and also from a sorority I briefly belonged to ten years ago, Kappa Delta. (I ended up as a sister of ADPi, but nevertheless, I did spend some time in the KD house, and I still keep in touch with some of them even today.)

Three girls were driving back to Statesboro from Atlanta on Sunday, when right before reaching their destination, they were in a car accident on I-16. Two of the girls died at the scene, and the third girl has been in ICU hanging onto life for the past four days. She died tonight.

I just want to express my deepest sympathy to the KD ladies, and to the friends and family of all three girls; Melissa Eustice, Jamie Carter, and Jessica Fulmer. While I was at Georgia Southern, a similar situation took place, and ADPi lost a sister. The community support was amazing, and I think through the thoughts and prayers I've seen expressed this week, that same support is being felt now.

Here is a news story about the accident, as they still have not found the car that caused the wreck.

This video pays respect to the girls, so if you're so inclined, here it is.
