A sad silence

I just read a news article that nearly made me cry, so I thought I would share the joy. It's a report of a car accident in Victoria on Sunday - a 17 year old learner driver was driving with her parents, a younger sister and an exchange student from France, and veered into the path of an oncoming truck. All of the car occupants were killed.

The family had another 20 year old daughter, who was not in the car. I cannot imagine being in her position, losing all of her family in one fell swoop...just awful. And the family of the exchange student back in France...would they ever be able to forgive themselves for letting their daughter go to Australia??

Heart-wrenching stuff.
