A 17 year old boy at Holden's high school was killed in a car accident on Friday. I can't get it out of my mind.
I didn't know the boy very well, but have spoken with his parents before. Holden was not friends with him. But, he goes to a small private school. All the kids there know each other.
I am just so sad for his family and his friends. Holden said it was a rough day at school today and that most of the kids couldn't take it and left early.
I can't imagine what his parents must be feeling. And, kids that age think they are invincible. This is a harsh wake up call for them.
There was a girl in the car with him that sustained some minor injuries. He was killed instantly.
When I found out about the accident on Saturday, Holden was at work. As soon as I could I went to see him. I just felt the need to lay eyes on him and give him a hug.
So, if you would, please keep this boy's family in your thoughts and prayers. And, hug your kids a little tighter.
