I am foregoing my normal entry this evening to ask for your prayers. Last evening, Erin Breen was killed in a car accident here in Houston. Erin was a 2008 graduate of Westbury Christian School. He was a very bright and engaging young man who I greatly enjoyed teaching in both eighth and tenth grades. In a small school like ours with only about sixty students per grade, situations like this hit even closer to home. Erin's brother, Evan, is a senior this year, also a terrific young man, and a student in my first period class. Erin's folks are wonderful people and I would guess you would have had to experience a loss like this yourself to have any comprehension of what they are going through. Life is short and sometimes, tragically so. Please pray for Erin's family and friends to have comfort and closure as they come to grips with their loss.
