Unbroken Friendship

For you I will 
Run as far as
I can to get help.
Even with three broken vertebrae
Nothing will stop me from
Doing what I can to save you.

Written in honor of a brave young woman who tried to get help for her friend after their car rolled in Southern Idaho a week ago Saturday night. They had lost their cell phones in the roll over and only one of them was able to drag herself out of the wreck.

I don’t know the name of this young woman, but I do know the name of her friend. Dakota was mentioned in my Stake Conference as she was the grandniece of one of my Stake Presidency. He mentioned her and her friend during a talk about the worth of souls.

Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God. -D&C 18:10

This friend reached the house they’d left and was able to alert them about the accident. Unfortunately, they were unable to get there in time to save Dakota who died of a broken neck in the accident.

I have tried to look up any information about the accident or the girls online and have failed, but I still felt the need to share this part of their story.

How many people would drag themselves from a wrecked car and run miles with three broken vertebrae in order to save their friend?
