Sometimes keeping your chin up is difficult in these hard times. Sometimes it's difficult to turn the other cheek. And sometimes when you think your life just sucks, a tragedy happens to someone else that is beyond fathoming and you realize that your problems are small. Last week a 16 year old boy was hit and killed in an intersection in front of Notre Dame High School which is right down the street from me. The funeral is today. I have two teenage daughters. One in college and one still at home whom I get to wake up every morning. Today there is a mother who is burying her son and my heart is so heavy. She will never get to wake her son up again for school or watch him run track or graduate from high school and college and live a life that he should have been allowed to live. My problems are nothing.
