When I lost my 14-year-old son to a tragic accident, I was plunged into a world of utter darkness. The light had gone out in my world. Everything moved in slow motion, and I would only hear the sounding of my heart trying to stop beating. The pain was so unbearable, I thought for sure I would not live until morning.
On Sept. 11th It will be 15 months since my 14 y/o son Justin was fatally injured and killed by a speeding car. He was just trying to cross the road to get to the sidewalk across the street. A 21 y/0 illegal immigrant was driving a mini-van 70 mph in a 30 mph two lane road. He was weaving in and out of traffic, and just as my son was in the outer lane, he passed the car in front of him and struck Justin. My son flipped over the van and rolled off into a ditch about 1000 ft. from where he was hit... Justin died almost instantly.
