Earlier this month I visited San Marin High School to say hello to "old friends." I will always have great memories of the students, staff and community.
I will also remember a student I never met. A couple weeks after I started teaching last year, a student from the cross town high school died in a car accident. The student had been a pasenger and died at the scene. His friends and/or family built a roadside memorial, and maintained it throughout the year. Because of my work with Mothers of Angels, I felt compelled to visit the site often and pray for the family.
When I returned to San Marin this month, I drove down the county road again and visited.
Last month, I visited Fresno County for my annual shoot with the Mothers of Angels. I saw a another roadside memorial that has been maintained by the landowners years after another teen age boy died in a car accident. These road signs help heal the unimaginable.
