Josh was quiet yesterday on the ride home from track practice. One of his friends-Ryan- was killed on his drive home from school. Word reached Josh just hours later.
Ryan was speeding and not wearing his seatbelt and was thrown from his car. The whole school....a small country school....is in mourning. Josh kept saying, "I just saw him. We took a make up test together. We were joking around. I just saw him."
That's the thing about life. It's so uncertain.
I keep thinking about Ryan's family. How they must feel. How I would feel if I were in their shoes.
It's so sad, and I think Josh has had one of his first really hard reality checks.
Those are never easy.
