That is not the right word for how I feel at the moment. I am emotional. A gentleman, a co-worker of my husband, experienced a tremendous loss the other day. It is something that I understand to be the absolute worse thing a parent can ever be told. He received a telephone call at work that his 17 year old son was in a hospital. He was devastated. That word is so inappropriate. His died in a vehicle that rolled over with five other teens. How on earth can you move on from that. He will never be the same man again.
I hate the word accident that they use to describe those scenes. An accident is something that is non preventable. Something that occurs which is beyond your control. This is not an accident. This is a tragic loss for everyone this boy has ever encountered. All those kids that attend his school, his family, the people that read about it in the paper or seen it on the news.
I am emotionally crushed tonight.
