These stories at the holidays make me sad....

As the parent of a college student, these are the types of stories that make my blood run cold:
A Virginia Commonwealth University student is on life support after falling nearly three stories from the roof of his home early this morning in the Fan District.
At the holidays when these things happen it seems even sadder. I can imagine his familiy rushing to the hospital and sitting by his bedside watching for a flicker of an eyelid or the twitch of a finger, waiting and hoping and praying ... while the rest of us are with family enjoying our Thanksgiving.

How sad. My prayers are for this young man and his family.
