A Sad Farewell

When someone is suddenly taken off this earth, much earlier than planned, it always gets people thinking. Why do we as a society, wait until the death of someone, to realize that life is fragile?

Jason Leffler – more commonly known to the NASCAR community as LEFturn, was involved in a sprint-car accident yesterday. (Please do NOT confuse this with the Sprint Cup Series. These are TOTALLY different cars – dirt track cars.)

Can you believe it? We just watched him race at Pocono last weekend. I can’t watch the coverage about him without breaking down into tears. He wasn’t my favorite driver, but still a driver in the sport I love. And thinking about the little five-year-old boy he left behind, is heartbreaking.

Here’s the car….

 

My thoughts and prayers go out…
