Why . . .

Why does it happen? 

It’s a question we ask after tragedy strikes.  Over and over.  Even when there’s no real answer.

Nick Adenhart 1986-2009

The sudden death of 22-year old up and coming Angels pitcher, Nick Adenhart, sucker punched baseball.  A family has been robbed of a son, teammates have been robbed of friendships maybe not even cultivated yet, and the baseball world has been robbed of a promising young talent, and the opportunity to proudly watch him grow. 

All because of a hit and run car accident.  And a suspected drunk driver . . .

Someone dies from a traffic accident involving a drunk driver every 40 minutes.  Every 40 minutes, a family gets the worst news they can possibly hear, that one of their loved ones is gone. 

Without reason.  Without an answer to WHY?

I wonder how Leon Hall, who was just arrested for DUI this week is feeling.  Like he is lucky to not have had a tragic end to his misdecision?  Remorseful?  I wonder how Donte Stallworth is feeling with this news.  I wonder how anyone who takes that chance to get behind the wheel after having one too many feels. 

I know how I feel . . .

The only thing we can do is keep Nick’s family, friends and teammates in our thoughts and prayers.  As well as the other two victims that are now gone, way too soon. 

Oh, and we can make the smart choice when deciding to drive after having a few drinks.  The life you take might not be your own . . .
