A friend of mine died in an accident. The cause of the accident, the man who hit her was texting at the time of the crash hitting her on her motorcycle, full speed, from behind.
She was a single mom of one son, she had a brother previously deceased from cancer, a sister, and her parents, amongst many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Yesterday was the sentencing of the man who hit her. He got 6 months with 3 months on good behavior.
This short sentence did not anger her son, father, or sister (mom since died of cancer) they forgave him. They didn't want his children to live without their father. This was amazing to me. To suffer the way they have and to be so forgiving toward the man who caused it. Those who hate don't heal. They want to heal. Amazing people.
The lesson: STAY OFF YOUR CELL PHONE WHEN DRIVING
