My easy child daughter got a call at 6am this morning from her bestfriend letting her know that a friend of theirs was killed in a car accident early this morning. This kid was only 17 years old, they are pretty sure he was drinking, hit a telephone pole and was killed. This boy was also the best friend of my bestfriend's son. This is going to be a tough one for all these kids. Hopefully they will all learn from this that underage drinking and driving, or for that matter drinking and driving at any age just does not mix. It's so sad. This boy was not a difficult child by any means and was going into his senior year of highschool in the fall. I don't know how parents get through something like this.
