Death is never an easy thing to deal with, but I imagine that it is easier to accept when a person has lived a full life or spent a long time fighting an illness. But the death of a young person…I can’t even imagine it. And yet today, I faced it.
One of my former students was shot in a drive-by on Saturday. Out for a drive with her sister and cousin…In the wrong place at the wrong time…
She was 16.
She was one of the truly nice students I have had the pleasure of teaching over the years. She was a sweet girl, friendly and outgoing.
To her family, my heart and thoughts go out to you.
