Hi everyone. This is Kevin San, and he’s my friend. He was 16 years old, and he loved to ride bikes. He was absolutely hilarious, every time I was around him I would laugh.
He passed away this morning in a horrible car crash.
What caused the crash was a woman of about 60 years old driving recklessly at roughly 80 miles per hour. She was running red lights, stop signs, and even sped around a big bus until she finally hit the mini van Kevin and his mother and sister were in. The van went airborne on compact. His mother and his sister are now in critical condition, and Kevin is gone. The driver only suffered minor injuries and is now being questioned. We don’t know if she was using drugs or drinking.
It’s just so unfair. Kevin and his family were in the car, waiting at a red light. They didn’t do anything wrong, yet they’re the ones who were injured the most. They were at the wrong place, at the wrong time. It wouldn’t have mattered what car they drove either, since they were hit from behind, and there’s no protection. What will the driver suffer for? Guilt? Time in prison? That may feel like torture, but nothing compares to the feeling of losing someone you love. No matter what you do, you can’t bring a life back.
As some of you may know, I go to the same school that Hanren Chang attended before her life was taken so early. She was hit by a drunk driver while crossing a street on her 17th birthday. Here’s the link if any of you want to read about that.
Life is short. Enjoy every single day you have, and be grateful for what you have; every single thing. Cherish every day of your life, and love the people around you. Realize how lucky you are, because you never know when something or someone may be taken away from you. By then, your deepest regrets will just be not being able to say goodbye, or not even hanging out one last time.
Please reblog or like to show that you care. Show everyone what reckless driving does. Pray for Kevin’s family, especially since the San family has now lost their only son, with the mother and daughter being in critical condition. Please, it may not mean much to you, but it means the world to people who care about him. You hear of people dying on the news every day, but the pain it causes when it happens to someone close to you is almost unbearable.
Here’s the link to Kevin’s tragedy if any of you want to read about it.
Stay strong, everyone, and rest in paradise, Kevin.
Fuck wreckless drivers. Fuck drunk drivers. Fuck ANYONE who thinks it’s okay to put their lives, and other people’s lives in danger just because they’re being impatient little pricks, or they’re too stupid to be responsible for their drinking. R.I.P.
