Reblog – “In Their Corner”

I wrote this last May after hearing about an absolutely horrific, avoidable car accident in which several teenagers (one of them was an acquaintance's niece) lost their lives.  Some of them, slowly.I'm reblogging it because Spring Break is upon us, and after that, Senior Weeks, Prom season, then graduation parties.  Catonsville Patch re-ran it before New Year's Eve.  I don't know if they will run it yet again.I've made some new friends since both postings, and I am not egotistical enough … [Read more...]
