Gone too soon

All of a sudden I have several friends grieving loved ones.

From a baby born prematurely to a son involved in a bicycle accident. All gone too soon.

And then came the news over the weekend of the 30 soldiers shot down aboard a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan. I didn't know any of them personally, but I have friends who did. And I have a unique connection with two of them that hit home: One of the young men was a graduate of my high school alma mater; another was a graduate of my college alma mater.

A piece of my heart goes out to all of them.
