Today at work, around lunchtime, the unthinkable happened.
I've been teary and prayerful in the hours since.
A man, with his son and grandson...I'm typing it here because I can't get it out of my head.
You may not want to continue to read.
The man, in an oversized pickup truck with a full trailer attached, let his son out a few blocks from my workplace...around a half a mile away. The son, for some reason, didn't walk behind the trailer or in front of the truck, he walked between the two, and the father, not knowing, took off. He dragged the son to the entrance of where I work until someone flagged him down and told him he was dragging something. Son didn't make it. Son's little boy was also in the truck.
You could hear the little boy crying.
I don't even know how I can process this, and these are people I did not know.
I've prayed, I've cried. I can't get it out of my mind.
The poor family. And no matter how may times people tell the man it wasn't his fault, he will never believe it. And people are cruel, and make cruel comments...and he will have to deal with a lot of that on top of his guilt.
