The death of Drew Morton, a student at George Washington High School, is a tragic reminder of how fragile life is.

By all accounts, Drew, who was killed in a car crash over the weekend, was a good kid who had the entire world in front of him.

Stories like this are heartbreaking, and I hope we can all take a moment and remember that life is precious and that tomorrow is never promised.

We grieve for all involved in this tragedy and we pray that his family can find peace.
