School death
Posted by siplus in Depressed on May 19, 2004

a day after prom, a girl in my class passed away on her way to church...

i wasn't real great friends with her, but i knew her enough to be affected. all the guidence councelers and teachers giving somber lechtures for an entire day kinda depressed the hell out of me.

she sat right in front of my in my anatomy/physiology class, and me and her were reciting a portion of a play that we were assigned to read to the class. i never really thought much about her, and how she acted until she was gone, but she was always a happy person. as i look back on this year i can remember her always being happy/positive...

and after all the 'words of caution' we have every year before prom, and of all the people for this to happen to, she died when her boyfriend crashed on the way to church.

it just makes me realize, that, since this is the first classmate of mine to die (my older brother had 4 or 5 of his classmates die before he graduated from high school) we (as a class of 2005) are not invincible. we can fall, we can lose just as much as everyone else. i just never really concidered death, because most of the deaths i have seen were when i was really young, and this event just kind of hit me. not sure how to react to it all

Death knows no age or creed.

With that said, I feel for ya man. When I was working at the factor I worked at, one of the guys on my crew was killed in a farming accident. He and I were more than just co-workers though; our families knew each other fairly well.
