I agree with you Debbie. This is going to be very difficult for the ones let behind...It always is... But lets not forget the real issue..."SPEED KILLS"

Unfortunately our teenagers of today have very little concept of reality.

Yesterday was Thursday...I am assuming this teenager was out of school for some good better have been a damn good reason.

I drove by the accident on my way home from visiting my husband at Saint Mary's Cemetery in Oakland...I immediately it was bad..the car took a large freeway sign down and went right down into the tree..

My heart goes out to the family.
