    Today I sit and mourn the loss of two beautiful, vibrant young lives. In the midst of confusion and disbelief I wonder how to make sense of it all. How do you explain to your child the reasons for lives to be cut short? Two of his friends, 15 year old girls, were out enjoying the day. They were doing things many teenagers do. Riding a 4 wheeler through the hills, they were laughing, smiling, loving life as the wind blew through their hair. Not a care in the world. In the blink of an eye their lives ended when they ran into a fence. All that remains are the tears being shed by their friends and families. Children should not have to bury their friends. Parents should not have to bury their children. Rest in peace Dakota and Adele. Your light will continue to shine through those whose lives you have touched.

    :hug: Corrina. That is very sad news. Things like this always make me contemplate, as do other things. So many things we'll never understand. However, what is important is carrying their memories along with you. My condolences.

    I guess this happens everyday, 40,000 children around the world starve to death when they go to bed each night. It helps put things into perspective because we're actually the lucky ones if we can afford to live lives where our only worry is health and safety as opposed to going hungry.
