“Youth Is Precious”

Youth is precious. In a week where the nation saw yet another terrible tragedy with the shooting death of 10 individuals and countless others affected in Santa Fe, another tragedy occurred a little closer to home.

A single car accident took the lives of 4 young men from Stoughton High School. All were members of the track team. David Bell was also a member of the basketball team and has competed against my son. A well respected young man taken from his family far too early and mourned by his community.

It is a sobering reality that each of these types of incidents will unfortunately continue to wreak havoc on our young and have a devastating effect on all.

Hug your loved ones, appreciate all and pray the next week will be better than the last.
