The Love Bug
|||||Spring Harvest - Falling On My Knees||]|
Well, it's been quite a weekend... what with Caroline making a 3 hours journey in 7½ hours, as well as other things.
We also discovered that a young lad who was only 17 years old was killed by a train at the railway station very near where I work. I do not know, however, when this tragedy occurred. I *do* know that it was his mother we saw on the station platform on Sunday afternoon, amongst the large number of bouquets of flowers placed against the railings of platforms 1 and 4. The sight of her was profoundly disturbing, as I considered the anguish and pain she must have been feeling. I, of course, will never know exactly what she was feeling, but I had enough of an insight to be able to understand why.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the mother, family and friends of this young man, taken from them in the prime of his life.

The place where this young man now resides.
