The Saturday after Thanksgiving there was an accident and 3 youth were in the vehicle that rolled numerous times. One was pronounced dead on the scene. One was life flighted to Tulsa. One walked away with only scratches and bruises.
Today the other young man died.
2 very young and bright TEENS. It's hard to choke out.
The youth of Bartlesville still haven't quite recovered from Scott's death and I do believe that hoping for Eric is what was holding them all together. And now, even their hope for that is gone. It is so hard to try to comfort them. Especially those whose True Hope isn't God. And even then, at 13-18 years of age, who am I kidding--any age, it's just hard.
I hurt for my girls, the youth of bville, the families of Eric and Scott. Death is no fun ever, but no one should have to bury their child...
I know that our God is Sovereign and He has a plan. I know that our God has gone before us, down this very road when His Son died, and he watched him being buried. For some reason that gives me a small amount of comfort, enough to be able to attempt to comfort them.
It's just awful
