I really don't know what to write today. To tell the truth I am sick of emotional shocks. There have been too many this year already.
Today just before lunch I received an email from my husband telling of a tragedy at school. One of the seniors, due to graduate on Friday, was killed in a traffic accident this morning on the way to school. I didn't know him, but still the thought of a young life snuffed out at this point can be described as nothing other than tragic.
And all who are left behind. His fellow students who had planned to be celebrating their graduation this week, are now left with mixed emotions. A shadow has fallen over the class. They've already has a tough year. March 11 Japan earthquake and all that went with that; followed soon after by their ministry trip to Thailand where they experienced another earthquake. And his family. Oh, what grief.
We're praying. We're groaning. Longing for the time when there will no longer be any tears, no more pain.
