Kind Thoughts Requested
I found out earlier today that there was a horrible accident on a major highway near my hometown last night. Two very good people were killed in a gruesome way. One person was my homeroom teacher last year (he was also a math teacher and track coach at my high school). The other was his wife. Apparently, they had been sweethearts since 8th grade. Although they died together, they left behind two children, both of college age. Their daughter was a good friend of mine and also a beautiful person. She was salutatorian of my class (quite a feat, considering there were 520+ people in my graduating class) and was just generally a good kid. Her parents were both 49.
Horrible things should NOT happen to wonderful people like these. My friend Alison is orphaned at the age of 18. She just started college a few hours from home and she is still being made to take her final exams this week. Christmas is coming up (this was a christian family) and it's going to be a rough time for them all.
If you could, please spare some energy or a kind thought for Alison, her brother, and her family, especially in light of the season.
Thanks very much.
what if everything around you
isn't quite as it seems?
what if all the world you think you know
is an elaborate dream?
and if you look at your reflection
is that what you want it to be?
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself--
find yourself afraid to see?
what if all the world's inside of your head
just creations of your own?
your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
and you're really all alone
you can live in this illusion
you can choose to believe
you keep looking but you can't find the woods
while you're hiding in the trees
