Then: A curving road, majestic trees, a deep ravine. Now: A dangerous road warning sign ahead, and a metal guard rail.
Then: Yelling voices and screaming sirens. Now: Birds and butterflies flutter quietly around.
Then: Valiant medical personal, grieving spiritual counselors. Now: Wilted dead flower bouquets, dirty yellow ribbons, a final memorial.
Then: A phone call in the middle of the night. Now: Rapid heartbeat every time a phone rings.
Then: Posing for hammed-up pictures. Now: Tear-covered fading photos.
Then: A heart breaking. Now: A heart breaking.
Then: Happy teenagers going to prom. Now: A daughter who will never come home.
