Garrett Park Mom Organizes Community Benefit to Remember her Son
Luke was hit and killed by a car in 2006
Luke would have been 17 years old this month
that is more than a handful of birthday parties that never happened
this is a life that did not get to be lived
Luke should be applying for colleges
Luke should be chasing girls at the library when he should be focusing on his homework
Luke should have the opportunity to do whatever it is that 17 year old boys do
Luke did not get to live past 12
Luke sounds a whole lot like either of my boys'
here is the article in the Washington Post from when Luke died
that "worst case scenario"
that big "what if"
every mother and father's worst nightmare
my heart goes out to Luke's family
and all other families that live with the pain of such a loss
