Friday the 13th.

Just the sound of that makes me want to watch a scary movie. It should rain tonight, much better to watch spooky movies with.

Things are moving on, slowly starting to think straighter. I did lose another 2 lbs on weigh in day. The walking at lunch helps clear the mind.

The drivers(16 & 18 yrs old) of those two cars from the accident are being charged with manslaughter. Is it wrong for me to think that they are already in jail for the rest of their life and that is enough? They will live with those memories and will suffer every day with that.  They are such young men and putting them in jail won't change what happened. It wont bring Jayli and Anthony back. They were kids making the wrong choice and will now suffer from the consequences. We were all kids and made some really dumb decisions, I know I did. All I can say is But for the grace of God....that could of been me or my kids or your kids.

I know not to many people will agree with this. Maybe under different circumstances neither would I. But after witnessing this, I am of a different mindset, hell I am a different person now.

WTG on the 2 pounds! I agree with you about the young men; their lives are forever changed like your/your daughter's lives are forever changed. Should there be some type of a punishment for actions taken? Yes. Perhaps taking away licenses for awhile, but they will carry the scars of this for the rest of their lives. And you are so right, by the grace of God it could be anyone of our children (and I have stories where it should have been my child but the Lord protected him and others). It really is such a sad situation, I know I keep saying it, but it is a sad situation.

I hope the weekend is a restful one for you.

Congrats on your loss! :)
I can't imagine how it feels to have witnessed what you have. I'm sure it would haunt me daily. I hope you find some peace - in the end, somehow things will all turn out. That's what I have to believe to get through things in this life.

Take care,
Love,
