Learning from a Tragedy – October 5, 2011

Last week was a sad week for our community. As many of you already know, a six- year old girl, Sioreli Torres of East Palo Alto was hit by a motorist on her way to school and lost her life. The news was devastating and heartbreaking. There is no other way to say it: losing a child is every parent’s worst nightmare.

While we grieve for the family of the child and for the driver who must carry the burden of this, we also must use the event as a lesson in how quickly something tragic can happen.
