The phone rings early this morning, I wonder who would call this late, or this early depending on how you look at. The voice at the end of the line asks if I had the news on, not a good start to a conversation I think. No I answer, I didn't watch the news, what happened. And then I hear what happened....

A family I knew yougest daughter was returning from a date with her boyfriend and there was an accident. He, the daughter's boyfriend, ran a stop sign and hit another car, causing his veihicle to flip and land on the passsenger side. They were air lifted to the hospital but it was too late to save her. She died upon impact, he's in intensive care.

Just like, a nice evening, a nice drive home and a life ended. How could you live, if you know that if you had stopped, she would still be alive next to you? How do you face her parents? How do you go on in life?

Its wierd, you don't think about death until it happens to someone close to you. You are invincible, you are bulletproof, nothing can touch you..... And then someone close dies and you are mortal, bullets hurt, and the reality of life sits in.
