Three youth in boating and drowning accident Chicago August 6th

PLEASE SEND DAIMOKU!!!!!!! Those 4 young adults in the boating accident. I know 3 of them, THEY WERE AT MY HOUSE THE NIGHT THEY HAD THE ACCIDENT--THRUSDAY. 2 OF THEM HAVE BEEN TO SGI-USA MEETINGS. ONE FEARED DROWN HAD ATTENDED ROCK THE ERA MEETING AT THE CHICAGO CULTURE CENTER. Chris  WAS LIKE A SON TO ME, THE OTHER MIGHT HAVE BEEN MY DAUGHTER IN-LAW, THE OTHER I HAVE KNOW SINCE 5TH GRADE
Kristen had chanted, Irene, and Chris went to rock the area meeting in june ( he is feared dead) sorry for the caps; I am a little shaken for these young lives of 19,20 and 21. I am fortunate that when my son left with them last night that he did not go. instead he went to his new girlfriends house instead of following his ex-girlfriend to hang out on the lake.

I will be glad to send Daimoku to them. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss.
Will definitely be sending daimoku for them, Faith. For their lives and their famiies. So young.
I will chant for these you, your son and his friends. I am so sorry for the loss of their lives!
Chris Gary body is still missing. He was like a son to me. He ate my food, slept on my son's floor or bed. He was always in my house. He attended a rock the era meeting in June but did not attend the festival.
Kristen and Irene are the 2 woman. Kristen has chanted before and Irene I had yet to get her to chant. They all have heard me do Gongyo and chant. Irene almost died she was the weaker of the two. I am chanting that out of this - I can get to the two woman to practice .
thanks for all of your daimoku. I am determined to help my son to practice stronger now and to understand my concern for his life and the life of his friends. Sometimes the young ones take it as an intrusion in their lives but its just concern.
Chris. Mom.
As I said before Chris did chant with my family and he did attend one of the Rock the Era Meetings
I did get a message from Irene. She told me she needs everyone prayers and she will see me soon.
OMG! Daimoku coming their way!



I talked to both Irene and Kristin( who is not a member but has been to a meeting) Kristin told me that she chanted and that she somehow knows that chanting saved her life)

A night of dark thoughts
Waiting for help for nearly 5 hours after boating accident, Kristin Masterson fought exhaustion and despair, hoping to survive but fearing she was the only one
August 09, 2010|By Duaa Eldeib and Kristen Schorsch, Tribune reporters

Chuck Berman, Chicago TribuneWhen she could no longer hear her friends' voices as she struggled to stay afloat in the frigid waters of Lake Michigan, Kristin Masterson believed they were dead.

Either she would meet the same fate, or by some miracle she would be saved.

As the darkness nearly broke her will to live, she feared "I was going to be the only one (rescued), and I was going to wish that I had died."

Masterson, 19, was one of four friends involved in a boating accident that turned fatal after all four wound up in the water together, leaving the 31-foot sailboat Joan's Arc unanchored and unattended. James Shepherd, 21, an accomplished sailor whose grandfather owns the boat, drowned. Police on Sunday continued their search for the fourth boater, Chris Gary, 21.

Both Masterson and Irene Rogers, 21, floated in the water for about five hours before three men out for an early morning fishing trip rescued them. Before that moment — before they threw her a life preserver again and again until it was close enough that she only had to loop her failing arms through it — her thoughts had become her sole company.
notice how the Doctor who not suppose to be there was.

Her arms and legs were useless at this point, so the men pulled her in and carried her to the lower deck, piled on blankets and gave her water to sip slowly. A doctor on board, who was actually running late and caused the fishing expedition to arrive at the exact moment it did, told her she escaped death by half an hour, she said
