    pray for my former school. A terrible accident involving the high school varsity boys bb team. Both coaches/teachers are dead, the driver of the other car is dead, one boy has no brain activity, 3 others have been life-flighted, 9 total to the hospital...oh, my God, why...

    My kids were in a car with their grandpa right behind it. They saw the whole thing. It's right by my house. These kids, these families...my heart is breaking.

    It's so very surreal, watching the whole thing unravel itself on Facebook and Twitter. So many rumors, so many hopes, so many stories.

    I just saw about this accident in the World Herald. It is near Broken Bow? I felt just awful when I saw the photo. How terrible! It just affects the whole community.

    Some of the boys have been released today. One is still pretty bad today, in a coma. One has two shattered femurs and two shattered elbows. One has a damaged lung. There was a community prayer service this morning, thankfully. It's so hard in a small town-everyone knows everyone and these boys and men did everything. Life has changed so much.

    Hug your loved ones tighter today.

    One student remains in critical condition. PTL, the others are on the mend, although some have a long road ahead of them. The community is coping as well as possible.

    Thanks gals. The community is healing for sure, but each "new" event will be difficult. I just saw the job postings for these teachers the other day, and it is just shocking to the system. The first days of school will be terrible, the first day of sports seasons will be too, the first etc, etc.

    But, the community is strong, and has really rallied around the boys who are healing. Thanks again for the support!
