Disagreement over Life Support for their 10 Year old Son
a ten year old boy had a heart attack on his bicycle while riding to school
this real life story is nothing shy of a tradgedy
it pains me to think about this incident as a father of two young boys

so often I think of all the worst case scenarios while on a bike
skinned knees, broken arms, and bloody noses
of course the risks in traffic with speeding cars drivers

but who would think a young child would suffer cardiac arrest?

news story

it is hard to look into the eyes of this young boy in this image
my heart goes out to the parents
I respect both of their perspectives on what should be done

Oddly enough.... Two year missionary service was without a bike
It seems that all the Mormon Missionaries here in DC travel by bicycle, why not in Brazil?
