i have been pretty sad about cainan's death...and by that i mean i have cried every day since it happened. the newspaper released more information about the driver who went across the median and what do you know--he tested positive for having several drugs (pot and several prescriptions you are not supposed to take and drive) in his system that impaired his reaction time on top of him having a suspended/expired driver's license. he should never have been on the road that day, and our friends were literally feet away from their exit off the highway when he went across the median and struck them head on. i know dwelling on that does not change the fact that little cainan was stripped of his life, but it makes me angry. there have been many comments and posts on the newspaper articles about how the road is dangerous and needs barrier cables or a median. although that might help, if we could just stop people from driving negligently that would've prevented this whole tragedy. i know his family is hurting and grieving as well and we all make mistakes, but it is just hard to forgive his actions.
look at this sweet face:
