A few days ago there was a tragic car accident here on Long Island. Five young counselors at a camp for disabled children (mostly autistic children) were in a car accident on their way to the camp. Three of the five died in the accident including two sisters and the brother of the driver. Please pray for the families especially the young lady who was driving who survived and must live with this tragedy. These were wonderful young people who had worked with the disabled since they were 14.

How terrible!

We had the worse ever road accident here in Ireland last weekend.
7 out of 8 young adults travelling in one car died as they collied with an ongoing car.
And the driver of the other car also lost his life!

I too keep wondering how the young driver who survived the crash will cope when he recovers....
I will pray for all of them and their families.

This is so sad. Both Sam and Kat are going to a camp this summer and the young adults that work with them are wonderful. It would be a horrible thing to deal with, to loose anyone so special to so many people.
