    well, i'm fine.....i mean, i wasn't terribly close to him, but it breaks my heart to hear about something like that happening to a little kid because they are so innocent and have so much life left. i did think to myself was his mother watching him? but what if she was? i mean, you can be watching your kids play right in front of you in the yard, but not be able to reach them before a car hits. it could happen to anyone. things like this don't make me feel "better" about my life, but they make you stop and think. grateful may be the word, but not better. i was just saying because there are a lot of moms here and if any of them are like me there are days where i am ready to pull my hair out because of my kids alone, but it could be worse....at least i'm not burying them. tradegies always make people reevaluate themselves....9/11...columbine, etc. it's human nature.

    that is just terrible! the poor people involved. Accidents happen like that literally every day. People def need to be more aware of what is going on around them..and not to sound harsh, but parents need to be aware of their kids at all times. I know we all know that, but things can happen so fast it is unreal.

    DB..i hope you are doing okay.

    I dont need to be reminded of tragedy, I know that it exists in the world...and I never use it to make me feel better about my life.....I already think life is precious and I count my blessings.

    You really gave me a better perspective. I can not imagine being the mother of any of those children or the poor man responsible. That's horrible!! How are you ?

    That is awful. I have some personal experience with this kind of tragedy. My best friend's son, who was 6, got ran over and died. It definitely makes you think differently about things.

    Default if you think your life is bad....

    or even that you're having a bad day....read this....

    as most of you know, i work with kids. yesterday my boss told me that a little boy who used to come to the center where i work got ran over and killed...he was 4. immediately everybody was asking, "where was his mother? why was he in the street?! etc..." he wasnt. he was riding his bicycle in the courtyard of the apartments where they live. a maintenance truck was driving through the courtyard which is normal for them because they pull up to the apartment door to clean out the apartments, etc. but this kid was just riding his bike along with about 10 other kids....right in front of his apartment building. the worker didn't see him, and ran right over him. he died instantly. not only that, but all of those other kids saw it happen. i worked with this little boy last semester at head start....i had to do observations there for about 3 weeks. he was so sweet....of course. could you imagine? so, if you think you're having it rough or that your kids are driving you so nuts you just wanna run away....think about what if?..........
