It's a sad day - a high school friend of mine just lost his 36 week old son today. To be honest, I haven't really kept in touch with him in over a decade but something like this transcends that kind of divide. The loss of any human life is tragic but when it's a child, or worse, an infant, there's an added sense of sadness. Is it because they've not had the chance to really come into their own? Is it something to do with the fact that children can be so adorable that it's hard to imagine death being anywhere near? Whatever the reason my thoughts and prayers are with my friends; I can only imagine what they are going through right now.
