      No, November 9th, 1926 was the worst day in Charles County.

        What a helpful comment, it’s not like you totally missed the point of empathy! How blessed we are to forget all the pain of today over an arbitrary date from almost 100 years ago. The world could use more people like you!

          It’s good that you can forget some tragedies so easily. I guess 9/11 is also meaningless to you. Ah, to be a sensitive snowflake like you, would be….horrible!

          Well both dates seem to be very tragic days.

        Does anyone remember November 6, 2007? Apparently not. As a sad reminder, 3 students from La Plata High School were killed in an accident on Oliver’s Shop Road. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Another student died from his injuries sustained in the crash so the accident actually took 4 lives. The students were ages 14-16. A young driver, driving way too fast lost control of the car, skidded across the road into the path of an oncoming SUV. The driver of the SUV was injured but survived the crash.

      Very very sad, my heart is breaking for all of these young men’s family and friends. As a mother of a senior at Thomas Stone this is every parents worst nightmare. I hope all students of Westlake and Stone and all area high schools please not allow these men to ldie in vain, please remember just how quickly things can go horribly wrong whether your on your phone, changing the radio station, texting or anything else that takes your eyes off the road even for a split second. In honor of all of these young men’s who’s lives were cut short make the extra effort to always be very careful when out driving. RIP

      Ummmm, the tornado was Mother Nature not human ignorance.

      • Wally on March 5, 2017 at 9:18 pm

        I bet you feel a lot better now, after calling the young man ignorant. You are not just a tool, you are the Sears 209 piece tool set!

        He was an 18 year old young man with his whole life ahead of him. People make mistakes but shouldn’t have to die for them. This family lost his Dad several years ago at the Navy Yard killings by some terrorist. Have some respect for this child and his family.

    Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends. God bless all of you.

    People under 21 should have to get a governor installed that would limit them to no more than 5mph over the posted speed limit. Too many young people being killed by speed and lack of experience. This puts us all in danger. Condolences to the family.

    Anyone with any comment expressing anything but condolences or possibly positive solutions to help avoid losing lives to speed is ignorant. This isnt the place nor time to be a jerk.

    My heart goes out to everyone affected by losses of love ones, friends, acquaintances, etc. Whether untimely, or suffering from a long illness. Honor your loss from present to as far back as one needs to go to grieve their loss.

    Now; here is the hard part: Do we live the remainder of our lives in honor of the lives loss? Or do we continue to rip each other apart? Because we can. Why not be kind, generous, helpful to our neighbor. Whether we know them or not. Regardless of skin color, sexual orientation, or ethnic or religious beliefs.

    If our love ones could come back. I best they would tell you how precious life is. They would tell us. “Don’t waste precious time being unloving, nasty, to man and womankind.

    I’ve learned over the years. We can not control the world. We can only control “ourselves”. We can’t, at some point, even control our children. Once they get past thirteen (my opinion), the need for speed engulfs them. Not driving speed. But, hormone speed. They are so precious. Thinking they know everything at 13-18. While parents are praying just left them make it out of High School and college. How will they adjust when slapped in the face with the real world. Makes us question. How we as adults are doing. Since we burst out of our guardians home. Is our lives all we wanted it to be. Our have we become mean and sinister?

    Enjoy your time on this planet. For one day the bell will toll. And, our names will be called. To quote something from Dr M.L. King’s speech, ‘Drum Major for Justice’ ” I just tried to live a good and decent life”.

    In summary, thanks to the police officers, Emergency Medical, hospital personnel. Saving a lives, reducing chaos are their first priority. They are exposed to, sometimes horrible, horrific accident scenes with someone’s loved one inside. It has got to affect them.

    Now as nice as I try to be: Their is an exception. And, even in this I am trying to show love and patience in trying to understand this particular person’s train of thought.

    There is one officer in particular: The police officer that was recently suspended (rightfully so…). Not for having an opinion. We all have opinions. But, this officer! Was insensitive enough to put his unwelcomed, unwanted, and truly negative opinion online. Words that continued in ripping the hearts out of these parents, family members, and friends. It was in such a hurtful manner. Hurtful tone. Did you not hear two people died. Was that still not enough for you? Hopefully the lost in pay will have you think about the victims, the family left behind. When you come up another severe accident scene. Or,maybe you should take some time to decide whether you should be in the “Serve and Protect business? That came from such a very dark and cold space in your life. Seek therapy, insensitivity training. Dig deep to get in touch with thexpenses source of that anger. If not you might be a receipt for disaster. Request more time off with pay this time.

    To the families. Nothing I can truly say. Your hearts and minds are speaking louder than any words I cold render. Just let “time” take it’s course. But, also know “time” will never heal all wounds. Funny, how that works.

    It is Lent season. I gave up my one and only; my favorite activity for me. I also dedicated my Lent season to the lives loss. The lives everyone carries around in their hearts day-by-day. Everyone is trying, or had to get use to a new normal. One day at a time.

    In addition, to learn one of the young men lossed on Smallwood. His Father was lost in the Navy Yard shooting. Doubly sad. We need our Higher Power to get us through times like these.

    Lastly! Everyone. Have a great life. Remember, if our loves one could talk. They would tell us. “Always be careful, be kind, and enjoy your PRECIOUS LIFE. FOR YOU TRULY, ONLY GET ONE. “You could look around…..and we are gone.”
