tragic

so fricken sad, and just a reminder that we never know what the future holds...

an american man was dribbling a soccer ball ("football")from washington to brazil to raise money to give soccer balls to developing countries. he was hit and killed by a truck only 2 weeks into his journey in oregon.

all that planning, excitement, and inspiration... is this irony? bad luck?

guess we need to enjoy the moment, huh?

hilary, dad brought this up during dinner, and it is sad, that once again trucks are thoughtless dangerous weapons and that i wish he had more time into his journey for all it must have meant to him.
he must have sad family suffering thru this now.
