weighing on my mind

All day long I've been trying to think of something to write about other than the death of Daniel Smith but it keeps coming back to me. Anna Nicole Smith's son was only 20 years old. Like many people, I remember when Anna showed up on the scene as a model for Guess? jeans. Like many people, I laughed at, not with, her show on the E! network. Like not so many people, I feel that she deserves a nice chunk of change for marrying that old guy. My wife and I have a child who is the same age as Daniel. When we lived in Burbank, our daughter and Daniel went to the same high school for freshman year. They didn't have any classes together but it was a small enough school that she would see him on campus at lunchtime. He was quiet and kept to himself. I feel sad for Daniel's parents and for all parents who have had to face the horrible pain of losing a child.

Celebrity or no,,wealthy or no,,the heartache is the same and our thoughts and prayers go out to Anna Nicole Smith.
Its not easy to be a parent and even harder to be a young person in our society. So many pressures and temptations and I think the most important thing that we as parents need to remember is to tell our children that we love them and that tomorrow is another day. Its so hard for our young people tosee past tomorrow..Pressures and heartbreak, to them, seems like it will last forever but we as adults know that there is much time..Time for good and bad,,joy and pain but nothing is forever.
God grant Ms Smith peace and comfort in the days to come.

I feel for Anna and the grief that she must be going through in losing a child. It doesn't matter who you are, there is nothing worse in this world. God Bless her.
