OMG this is about the 9th death for difficult child in the past year and a half. I posted last week about him riding with friends (he is younger than classmates) Then I found out that he is walking to the corner and friends are picking him up. I was giving him a talk last Friday evening about not riding with inexperienced drivers, more than one in the car is illegal, and wearing seat belts. He swears he always does that...PLUS he admits to me that these kids get high (but not when they drive) As I am giving the talk his phone rings. Friend died in wreck. I just looked at him and walked away. did not know details than. A few hours later his friends brother called him. They were in North Carolina heading back to Wisconsin from Spring break. Camper started to sway, dad lost control, friend was thrown out of the vehicle (dodge durango). he was crushed when the camper/vehicle flipped. Mom, dad, brother ok...sister has head injury. The story was known to everyone via cell phones and Myspace. But the actual article appeared today in our local paper. He read it today before school. NO SEATBELT! This is just so many deaths. They are so young.
