A six year old, riding his bike, was run over and killed in a no passing 25 mph zone on the side of a rural highway.
Didn't even see it on the local news.
Maybe tomorrow.
Too soon?

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

@Pricknick I agree we will hear this all day every day for the next week but hear nothing correct about anything else. I am so tired of this kind of media bs. What about all of the rest of the young people that dead because of gun violence and our bombs around the world. Silence!!!

@Pricknick before they let news people release it. If it takes a while to locate and inform family, it can be a long time before news has it. At least, that is the way it is supposed to work.

@Pricknick

to skip essays you aren't interested in. You might not care about this, but I thought the video of his last game might interest others. I was at the game and he put on quite a show.

He went directly from high school to the NBA, none of that college route most pros take.
Proved his chops in playground courts. Extreme talent.
Think he peaked out about 5 years ago. Tough sport.
Meteoric rise. Early fall.

Even a hater like me can't deny that fact.
