The Passing of Time

Thirty years ago today a friend was killed in an automobile accident. The reminder came from another friend on Facebook. Within seconds, the memories came flooding in. Classmates remembered him, schoolmates remembered where they were when they heard. I was having my Senior Class photo taken. His was a life full of promise and hope. In a second he was gone. It seems like yesterday and yet it was a lifetime ago.

We never really know the lives we touch, do we? The hearts we break, the hope we give, the sorrows we comfort and the joy we share. I'm glad his life touched mine. I'm glad schoolmates remembered a life today.
