i don't know about the devil being real sush. people are evil enough. (i respect your beliefs tho.)
this sounds nuts, but on one solo backpack trip, i walked deep into the forest on a pitch black stormy night, and challenged the devil to show up. i waited a while, but then i slowly walked back to my campsite with the hair on my neck standing up, occasionally checking over my shoulder. lol, the next morning i realized that he/she/it doesn't exist. there is enough evil in peoples' hearts without needing help.
and i watch too many movies...
ishbel, i hope and pray they catch the bast**ds. we here in the usa know that the uk is our greatest ally, has always stood "shoulder to shoulder" with us in times of peace and war, and together we shall not be defeated.
