keep moving

We lost a student over the weekend. He had just finished a cross-country meet. He and his friends were heading across town to meet some more teammates afterwards when he was hit by a car.

I have one freshman girl on the team, and she'd just written an essay on running. Her words hit me a little harder today. She wrote, "To know how to keep moving forward is a skill."

she is oh so right. What an observation for the moment.

Some events are just totally senseless and we can never accept them.
