Today, shadesong jumped out of a perfectly good airplane. And lived to tell (and blog) about it.

I have no words. OK, I'll try: I am stunned and amazed -- both by what she did and how she writes about it.

Please take time to read her words, starting here and clicking on "next chapter" (right-hand side of the screen) to read the next installment. Pictures are included.

Shadesong jumped as part of Operation Freefall, a fundraiser and awareness-raiser for Speak Out Against Rape (SOAR) and the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN). She alone raised $1,205. And she was one of many who jumped today in SOAR and RAINN's names.

Please read it.

Edited to add (thanks to shadesong herself): Now it's $1,230!
