When I was kid, a neighbor was involved in a horrible accident about the same time as a holiday (I'm pretty sure it was Thanksgiving.) I remember one of my family members remarking about how difficult it would be for the victim's family because they would be reminded of it every year when that holiday rolled around.
That stuck with me so much.
What a sad thing to happen. And to be just be driving down the road and doing nothing wrong only for it all to end. At the risk of being overly dramatic, it could happen to any one of us at any time. It stopped me in my tracks this morning.
