    I just went to Augusta to see Esbelle and its more than just cuts and bruises. She was hurt really bad and just because the sirens were working doesn't always mean you can hear them. I don't alway hear the sirens either. Esbelle is a very responsible person and this was just a freak accident. Please pray that she gets well soon.
