We all wonder, what kind of a person could let this happen?  Ask yourself this question.  Have I ever driven from point A to point Z and not remembered the drive?  I don't remember turning left on Main Street, or stopping at the red light on 4th Street.  But I must have.  I arrived at my destination safely, didn't I?  Scary isn't it?  If you haven't had this experience, you are fortunate.  If you have, it might help put into perspective how busy our lives are and how these tragedies can and do occur.
