The Message

The other evening my wife and I met the mother of a child I had buried not quite one year ago. She was 15 years old when she was killed in an avoidable automobile accident and had a full life ahead of her. Her mother, brother, grandparents, still cannot bear her loss. The day we spoke they had her head stone erected and her death was once again brought right up front in their minds. If only this child had thought to consider the possible consequences perhaps she would be alive today. I try to spread this as far as I can; our kids need to know that they are precious and very fragile...teach them to think, please. Thank You.
