Tragedy in NYC

I am normally not one to watch the news -- I cannot handle it. But today I didn't get to the remote in time and I caught the first story they had on the 11 o'clock news on ABC.

It was about this poor woman that tragically ran over her infant son after he slipped out of her arms this afternoon while she was trying to get the vehicle in park.

What makes this story all the more sad and heartbreaking is that the woman's husband (and the father of the baby) was killed in Iraq in February in a vehicle too.

Can everyone that reads this please take a moment to think about this poor woman today and if you're the type to pray -- please add her to your prayers. I don't know how much it will help, but it certainly won't hurt!

The tears are streaming down my face as I type this entry -- I can't even imagine what she is going through...

I cannot imagine what that must be like. I will keep her in my thoughts. It is times like these we realize how precious life really is.
