I drive past Dudley Road in Framingham, MA every day at least once, most times twice. Today I noticed that attached to one fo the tall electrical poles were a number of flower bouquets, poster boards, and photos. I didn't take the time to stop and look (which for some odd reason, I regret), but I know from experience that the roadside vigil indicates something grim. Clearly, a life, or lives were tragically lost and lives of loved ones were forever changed.
I couldn't help but think about this all day long. Who was responsible for the crash? Were they drinking? Doing drugs? Sleepy? Chatting on the cell phone? How old were the people who died?
It made me so sad.
