This morning at school, Will's friend Gabby was called out of class to learn that her father had just died in a car crash. How does a 14 year-old girl cope with such heartbreak? How does a mother stay strong for her children?
This is tragedy that can NOT be faced alone.
How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow?
Your life is like the morning fog—
it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.
How frail is humanity!
How short is life, how full of trouble
We blossom like a flower and then wither.
Like a passing shadow, we quickly disappear.
