I just got back from the funeral of my friend's 11 year old son. No one should ever have to go through such a thing. I hope to never be able to truly sympathize with such agony, but as a parent I can't help but want to do something, even if it's small.
So here's my meager tribute to a little boy named Conner who wanted to be an astronaut. Please think of him and his family, and if you pray, say one for them tonight.
I just needed to write this, even if it isn't much. If you did read it (despite the warning) and you have a child - go hug them.
