    Hearing about tragedies like this always makes me be a kinder person to those around me regardless if I know them or not. I have always thought of myself as a kind person, but I know that I can always be kinder.

    So true, Izzy. I found myself having a bit of road annoyance this afternoon and then just remembered these names and all my annoyance went away. Life is too short.
