a prayer request

i don't know if anyone noticed but i've been mia since the new year, posting only a scheduled 5 month post for Owen. on new years day something terrible happened to my brother and i have to admit that blogging just hasn't been on my priority list since then. i've debated whether or not to post about this, and i won't go into too much detail, but my brother needs your prayers so here i am asking for them.

early new years day, around 3am, my brother 19y/o brother was jumped by multiple men. he was stabbed in the back multiple times and kicked and beaten. thank god he had a small knife to defend himself and escape his attackers, who were going to kill him. these men and their friends then told the police that my brother had gone on a "stabbing rampage" and he was arrested on 5 counts of aggravated assault.
my innocent brother is now sitting in jail while these sick men roam free.
my family has been working non-stop to get my brother released and these men arrested.

what i am asking of you is that you keep my brother and our family in your thoughts and prayers.


thank you.

p.s.- sorry for my lack of eloquence, it's been difficult to think straight lately.
