Every so often we hear news that rattles us to the core. Unfortunately, I had that experience this past weekend when my best friend texted me on Friday night to let me know that her sister’s boyfriend’s four-year-old son was shot in the head in a freak accident. Even worse news came the next morning when I woke up to a text that he had died in the middle of the night. You can read a full news report here. Father and son were fishing off a pier at their lake house on Friday night when their neighbor drunkenly shot at a porch light and obviously missed (the neighbor has since been arrested for reckless homicide.

While my heart goes out to the poor families of this innocent child, this type of news leaves many wondering how something like this can happen. There isn’t much to take away from this except to remember to appreciate your loved ones at all times because you truly never know what can happen in the blink of an eye.
