A Summer full of unfortunate events


#1

My summer has been slam packed with unfortunate events. First, one of my good friends growing up and neighbor committed suicide. Less than a month ago my Uncle got killed in brush hogging accident, which is still under investigation. So last night, one of my best friends who is like a brother to me and my family had a very bad accident. He races quads nationally. This was the last race this weekend and it was at tennesse. He was in the points race and needed a good finish to have a chance. He was in first place with a couple laps left and he came up short on a table top and took a nose dive. Right now he is at Vanderbilt(sp) medical center in critcle condition. He has two broken eye sockets, his palete (roof of mouth) is broken in two places, most of his teeth are broken out, he has brain swelling, and blood in his lungs. The doctors are uncertain if he will make it, but it appears that things might be okay for him. The good news is he isn’t paralyzed.

I can’t wait for this summer to be over and get back to school…
