My daughter is 17 years old. Today two of her friends were killed in a car accident, the third, in critical but stable condition. These kids were "playing" - going 125 miles per hour on a country road. The first boy was crushed and killed instantly, the second boy died in the hospital - his brain exposed. The girl has a hole in her skull and it is going to take all the prayers, candles and good wishes (whether you are religious or not, send light this young girls way). Her name is Jen - she is a senior in high school - she is due to graduate in three weeks. The boys names were Lee and Ryan - they were also seniors who won't be graduating this year. All three were part of my daughter and her boyfriend's crowd - they went to the prom together - they went to parties together and hung out at each other's homes. These were good kids - but doing that stupid boy thing with fast cars and dares. As sad as my daughter is, she is alive and these other children are not and although Jen might live, she will never be the same again. Please give us your usual cat site prayers and wishes, although this time it is for human children rather than our normal furry kids.
