So it's that time of year again and let's be honest , everyone wants to have fun, spend time with family and friends and not have a care in the world . The reason for posting this , we had a very bad preventable accident happen in our area , it's an area I drive just about every day and after hearing what happen still makes me shake my head is disbelief. Around 10 PM last night a couple of kids , anyone under 25 I consider a kid nowadays , headed out on the road last night , they were driving southbound on the interstate, in the northbound lane . Needless to say they hit a few people , 4 cars in all. Now , after reading the reports in my Facebook feed , one of the people who were hit by these kids , was an 18 year girl on her way home , she didn't make it and was killed at the scene, the boys are still in cri critical, and the family heading home didnt have reported injuries. What struck me the most about this story is , my wife and her oldest son were on their way back from Florida visiting youngest son and grand parents last night and got stuck in traffic while they cleaned up the mess . The biggest part of the report I read was the 18 year old girl , who didnt make it home . I texted my wife a few times and didnt get a respond, didnt see my sister online , so panic started to creep in since my sister's daughter, my niece was the same age and lives in the area this girl was trying to get home too. At this time names were not released yet by the authorities. What really hits the pissed up button here is that here is one girl who is someone's daughter, sister, cousin, niece, grand daughter , and friend who was just trying to get home and wont be there this coming holiday season . She is now in God's hands because of someone else's stupidity. The point I am making here is this , no matter what time of year, day, or season , be safe, remind those around you that you care , spend time with them when you can, because you never know when it's your time to go . Good afternoon .
