    The last day for students was yesterday. Last night one of the high school freshmen died in a tragic accident. One our 7th graders was there, too.

    They were jumping off the deck to the trampoline. Somehow something wrapped around the freshman's neck and either strangled him or broke his neck.

    I can't imagine how the families must be feeling. What an awful way to start a summer.

    Oh, that's horrid. Is the school reopening for those who might need to talk?

    The high school had graduation tonight, and they had a moment of silence. The football boosters were taking up money to help with funeral expenses.

    News and kids who were there have said they were just goofing around. He had a dog lead around his neck when he fell or tripped. Truly a freak accident.

    That is so sad. A dog leash around his neck?
    I will pray for the family too, and I hope that they will find a way to go through this with God's help and guidance.
    A very sad way to start Summer.
