Lightning turns out a Light

I usually do not comment about local stories, but this one is just breaking my heart:

Carbondale student athlete is dead after being struck by lightning
Thursday afternoon at a track meet. Corey Williams was an 18-year-old
junior at Carbondale Consolidated High School. he was walking toward
the ticket booth at the track when lightning struck. Now the school
and community are reeling from the loss

A dark day for his friends and family to be sure, but this story has filled me sadness that I cannot exress. I have no connection to his family or community, but my heart aches for them and my prayers go out to them.

It is a terror when anyone days, but to have that smile taken out of the world. I mourn that we will never know what great things he would have accomplished. Please pray for his family and friends.
