  • An acquaintance was just killed

    A guy that I know from the riding community was killed, the other day.

    He was cut off by an ambulance, but not entirely the ambulances fault by a long shot. He was speeding up the street and then accelerated when he got closer to the light. The ambulance turned and he broadsided the ambulance. He was also not wearing any protective gear.

    Makes me really sad that this happened. It was the fault of both "drivers". But the motorcyclist always comes out on the short end.

    Just a little sad today.

        Lord please bring comfort and peace to my brother, and to the family of the man who died. Give them mourning that is cleansing and healing, to all who loved the one who is now gone from their lives.
        Blessings,

          So sorry Big T! Be comforted my dear brother. I hope you didn't get to see this tragedy in person. I really don't like the image such things leave on the mind.

          So sorry!

            Ouch, sorry to hear about this. I'll be praying for you, his family, and his loved ones.
            We long to be known and we fear it like nothing else.
            Most people live with subtle dread that one day,
            they will be discovered for who they really are,
            and the world will be appalled.

                    Very sorry to hear this Big T.

                    Live your life in such a
                    way that, when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says...

                    "Oh NO.... she's awake!"
