Sad

I am overwhelmed with sadness for a boy I used to know. A boy I had as a camper, who was funny, charming, intelligent, affectionate, and kind. I haven't seen him since the last day of camp a decade and a half ago, but he has always stood out in my memory as being one of my all-time favorite campers.

And now he's been arrested for arson. I am sad to think of how he got to a place in his life that made this a possibility.

Oh dear, I hope he can turn his life around. I hope he can be a favorite again.

I'm sad for a boy I knew, though I have no idea how he is doing. Last I heard, not that well. He features in one of my novel, fictionalized, of course.

My comment thing wouldn't take me here as it usually does so I had to take a roundabout route.

Lordy!! You knew that particular individual? Is it any consolation that he made a really big fire? I suppose not.
